About this book

The books in this series are designed for junior undergraduates and diploma students in all biological sciences. They cover the field of modern biochemistry, integrating animal, plant and microbial topics. Each chapter is prefaced by a list of learning objectives, with short summaries, revision aids and end-of-chapter questions. This volume comprises an introduction to the biochemistry of macromolecules.

'Smith and Wood have provided an excellent introduction ... overall the book is too good a text to be read solely by students. From someone who confesses to a slight aversion to life sciences' biochemical/molecular dimension, this is praise indeed.' Jonathan Cowie in The Biologist 'I found it easy to read and I could see its potential as an accessible text for junior undergraduates.' TIBS
