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 provides an account of the mechanisms of biochemical synthesis.

...the textbook is highly recommended for its high didactic level - European Journal of Histochemistry; ..very attractively produced with crisp printing, lots of well chosen and reproduced illustrations and plenty of diagrams - Journal of Biological Education; This is a book as we like it, nicely presented, clear, highly didactic, interesting form the first to the last word. - Cellular and Molecular Biology
