This text uses a more brief and qualitative approach to present biochemistry with chemical rigor, focusing on the structures of biomolecules, chemical mechanisms, and evolutionary relationships. It is written to impart a sense of intellectual history of biochemistry, an understanding of the tools and approaches used to solve biochemical puzzles, and a hint of the excitement that accompanies new discoveries. This edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of genomics and structural biology. A new chapter focuses on cytoskeletal and motor proteins, currently one of the most active areas of research in biochemistry.

Understand what you don't know!
WileyPLUS (access purchased separately) for the new third edition of FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOCHEMISTRY now offers over 750 conceptually-based online questions, organized by chapter and topic. These original questions were created by biochemistry Professors at University of Alberta, and have bee3n tested and used since 2000.
Now in WileyPLUS, these questions offer practice with instant intelligent feedback that explains why an answer choice is right or wrong.
WileyPLUS also contains:
Donald Voet received a B.S. in Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology, a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard University with William Lipscomb, and did postdoctoral research in the Biology Department at MIT with Alexander Rich. Upon completion of his postdoctoral research, Don took up a faculty position in the chemistry Department at the University of Pennsylvania where, for the past 38 years, he has taught a variety of biochemistry courses as well as general chemistry. His major area of research is the X-ray crystallography of molecules of biological interest. he has been a visiting scholar at Oxford University, The University of California at San Diego, and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Together with Judith G. Voet, he is Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education. He is a member of the Education Committee of the International Union of biochemistry and Molecular Biology. His hobbies include backpacking, scuba diving, skiing, travel, photography, and writing biochemistry textbooks. Judith ('Judy") Voet received her B.S. in Chemistry from Antioch College and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Brandeis University with Robert H. Abeles. She has done postdoctoral research at the University of Pennsylvania, Haverford College, and the Fox Chase Cancer Center. Her main area of research involves enzyme reaction mechanisms and inhibition. She taught biochemistry at the University of Delaware before moving to Swarthmore College. She taught There for 26 years, reaching the position of James H. Hammons Professor of chemistry and Biochemistry before going on "permanent sabbatical leave." She has been a visiting scholar at Oxford University, University of California, San Diego, University of Pennsylvania, and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. She is Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education. She has been a member of the Education and Professional Development Committee of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as well as the Education Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Her hobbies include biochemistry and Molecular biology. Her hobbies include hiking, backpacking, scuba diving, and tap dancing. Charlotte Pratt received her B.S. in Biology from the University of Notre Dame and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Duke University under the direction of Salvatore Pizzo. Although she originally intended to be a marine biologist, she discovered that Bi8ochemsitry offered the most compelling answers to many 3uesitns about biological structure-function relationships and the molecular basis for human health and disease. She conducted postdoctoral researching the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has taught at the University of Washington and currently teaches at Seattle Pacific University. In addition to working as an editor of several biochemistry textbooks, she has co-authored Essential Biochemistry and previous editions of Fundamentals of Biochemistry.
