Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides the essential information necessary for students in the life and health sciences. The text assumes some background knowledge of chemistry from students who are taking their first university course in biochemistry and molecular biology. The book adopts a readable, student-friendly style that helps introduce students to this fascinating and often-times daunting subject. In order to face the avalanche of information available, the authors let students know what specific knowledge will be expected of them in their future classes and careers. To aid in alleviating confusion, the material is presented in a step-by-step manner that avoids giving information before it is relevant. The extensive use of cross-referencing makes it possible for students to return to individual sections for review purposes without difficulty. Whether students interests lie in biological, chemical, or medical aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will help make students able, excited, and eager to read more widely and more deeply on this engaging subject.
Offering a complete introduction to biochemistry and molecular biology, this important new text not only covers an extensive set of topics of current and special interest, but includes more traditional areas in biochemistry as well. There is an emphasis on biological aspects of biochemistry and new topics are introduced in their biological context wherever possible. Presenting core material on the structure of proteins and membranes, metabolism, and information storage and utilization, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology also surveys the immune system, viruses and viroids, and the disparate enzymatic protective mechanisms in the body. Areas of special importance such as metabolic regulation, cell-cell signaling, and control of gene expression are given appropriate emphasis in separate chapters.

Review:

`Review from previous edition This is a very impressive introductory textbook ... It is well organised, beautifully illustrated and designed, a pleasure to read and a delight to study. Artistic use of colour (vibrant but not garish) makes it instantly appealing. This book should prove popular among a very broad variety of students for whom understanding of principles is more important than memorisation (and regurgitation at examination times) of large amounts of poorly comprehended factual information. There are many such students around the world who will benefit from this masterly boook.' (F. Vella, Biomedical Education 25(4) 1997 )

`'I liked the organisation of the book and found the language friendly and easy to read. Numerous attempts are made to explain the logic of what is happening: 'You don't need to know about this at this stage...One can hear a friendly Australian voice here...tutoring their students in a friendly and helpful way! Students need reassurance when complex matters are being discussed. So, overall this book does in fact give a lot of detail...and for many students on BS courses what is provided here is more than sufficient.'' E. J. Wood, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education
