About this book

Voet, Voet and Pratt's "Fundamentals of Biochemistry", 4e addresses the enormous advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of structural biology and Bioinformatics by providing a solid biochemical foundation that is rooted in chemistry to prepare students for the scientific challenges of the future.

While continuing in its tradition of presenting complete and balanced coverage that is clearly written and relevant to human health and disease, "Fundamentals of Biochemistry", 4e includes new pedagogy and enhanced visuals that provide a pathway for student learning. The authors are careful to present new information such that it links it to existing content, ever mindful that students assimilate new information only in the proper context. The enriched assessment content in WileyPLUS offers students the opportunity to gauge their conceptual understanding and receive immediate feedback to address misconceptions.

Review of the previous edition:

"...contains a wealth of high-class pedagogical features...the authors write well and do a fine job in conveying to students the most exciting advances in modern biochemistry."
