Biochemistry – J. Berg, J. Tymoczko, L. Stryer – 5th Edition


Since its first edition in 1975, this extraordinary textbook has helped shape the way that is taught, and has become one of the most trusted in the field. It offers exceptionally clear writing, innovative graphics, coverage of the latest research techniques and advances, and a signature emphasis on physiological and medical relevance.

The seventh edition has been updated throughout, including many new advances on genetic regulation, and revamped coverage of the integration of in the context of diet and obesity. Numerous new medical examples have been added throughout to make real and relevant to students. The addition of new contributing author Gregory Gatto, an active pharmaceutical researcher at GlaxoSmithKline, ensures that the seventh edition presents the latest techniques that need to understand in biochemistry research today. The end-of-chapter have also been revised and updated, providing students with great new exercises to test their understanding.

The book is supported by a companion which provides a variety of to aid understanding and including concept-based tutorials, animated techniques, self-assessment tools, and living figures that allow protein structures to be explored in 3-D.
