The third edition of "Concepts in Biochemistry" makes the most applied and accessible biochemistry text on the market. Students are more successful with Boyer because it isn't intimidating and it makes clear the relevance of the material to their future careers. Like the first two editions, Boyer is written for students who need an introduction to the fundamental principles of biochemistry and are preparing for a career in the allied health sciences, the biological sciences, and the environmental sciences. (The text is also appropriate for use in one-semester courses developed for chemistry majors as a result of the new American Chemical Society requirements for three-credit hours of biochemistry coursework.) The modern, student-friendly organization sets the book apart from the competition because the early placement of nucleic acids enhances the traditional coverage of protein structure and function, and metabolism. As an example, it is now possible to present metabolism in a more contemporary fashion, emphasizing gene regulation and integration. Rod Boyer is a recently retired Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. He has a PhD from Colorado State and recently spent a sabbatical year at Nobel Prize winner Tom Cech's lab at the University of Colorado. He is on the Editorial Board for the journal, "Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education" and has been very active in education affairs for the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Thoroughly clinical, completely accessible, and always relevant.
Millions of people throughout the world suffer from the effects of sickle-shaped red blood cells like those depicted on the cover. Sickle cell anemia is just one of the myriad ways biochemistry intersects with our lives.
This Third Edition of Rod Boyer’s Concepts in Biochemistry highlights the many fascinating intersections between biochemistry and real life. Written with allied health majors and applied life science students in mind, Boyer takes a clinically focused, easy-to-understand approach to biochemistry, filled with many real and highly relevant applications such as metabolic topics and basic drug pathways. The result is one of the most accessible, concise, and applied biochemistry textbooks in the discipline! The new edition continues the complete and balanced coverage of all fundamental concepts in biochemistry of the Second Edition.
“I especially liked your ‘Biochemistry in the Clinic,’ and ‘Windows on Biochemistry.’ They are very thought provoking and show specifically how Biochemistry affects humans and makes it relevant to real life conditions.”
––Siegfried Detke, University of North Dakota
“Rodney Boyer is an excellent writer. His writing style is at the appropriate level and the students genuinely enjoy reading it.”
––Greg Clodfelter, Drake Universit
