About this book

Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life is an intermediate, one-semester text written for students on degree pathways in Chemistry, Biology, and other Health and Life Sciences. Designed for students who need a solid introduction to biochemistry, but are not specializing in the subject, the text focuses on essential biochemical principles that underpin the modern life sciences, and offers the most balanced coverage of chemistry and biology of any text on the market. The text equips students with a complete view of the living state, emphasizes problem solving, and applies biochemical principles to the fields of Health, Agriculture, Engineering, and Forensics, to show students the relevance of their learning. McKee and McKee is respected for its balance of biology and chemistry, consistently placing biochemical principles into the context of the physiology of the cell and biomedical applications.

Media reviews

"McKee's Biochemistry is by far the best available textbook on the market for a one semester undergraduate Biochemistry course. It is very reader-friendly and has a better flow than most Biochemistry textbooks. This textbook goes beyond being a good reference book for students. Several features like key concepts, medical correlations, chapter summaries, 'Biochemistry in Perspective,' and end-of-chapter problems help guide learning and provide valuable study materials."
– Niina Ronkainen, Benedictine University

"McKee's Biochemistry is an excellent, one-semester biochemistry text that covers the major topics to an appropriate depth for health professions students. It is concise yet provides enough details to lay a solid biochemistry foundation."
– Joe Deweese, Lipscomb University

"The amount of material covered and the depth of the coverage is very good for a one-semester biochemistry course. The clinical examples to start each chapter are very nice and a good way to interest students in the material. The writing is at a level that will be helpful to students."
– Michael Gunther, West Virginia University
