Description

Principles of Biochemistry provides a concise introduction to fundamental concepts of biochemistry, striking the right balance of rigor and detail between the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory overview texts available on the market today. Widely praised for accuracy, currency and clarity of exposition, the Fifth Edition offers a new student-friendly design, an enhanced visual program, new Application Boxes, contemporary research integrated throughout, and updated end of chapter problems.

Now with offline access functionality, CourseSmart offers instructors and students the freedom and convenience of online, offline, and mobile access using a single platform. CourseSmart textbooks may include digital access to media or supplements that are packaged with the bound textbook.
