Summary

This text presents the discipline from a boichemist's point of view as well as a biological perspective. It shows how biochemical processes work in living organisms and the working methods of practitioners. The accompanying CD-ROM contains additional learning material.

Biochemistry Summary

Biochemistry: United States Edition by Christopher K. Mathews

Biochemistry,Third Edition merges a classical organization and presentation with contemporary insight, information, and technology, to make modern biochemistry interesting and accessible to today's students. Thoroughly updated to include the latest information, perspectives, and experimental techniques, the text is now supported by integrated media resources designed by the co-author Kevin Ahern. Together, the text and media resources provide students and instructors with a doorway to the vast world of biochemistry that is continuously evolving and which greatly exceeds what could be covered in a conventional textbook alone. As in previous editions, the authors introduce nucleic acid structure early (to clarify presentations of protein structure and function), emphasize the experimental roots of biochemistry (past and present), continually emphasize the energy relationships in biochemistry, and take a stepwise approach to complex metabolic pathways. The result is a thorough grounding in biology at the atomic/molecular level. The explosive growth of biochemistry, molecular biology, and biotechnology makes this approach particularly relevant for today's life science students.

About Christopher K. Mathews

Christopher K. Mathews is Distinguished Professor and Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Oregon State University. Dr. Mathews was an Eleanor Roosevelt International Cancer Fellow at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm in 1984-85 and Tage Erlander Guest Professor at Stockholm University in 1994-95. He has published several books and more than 125 scientific papers dealing with molecular virology, metabolic regulation, nucleotide enzymology, and biochemical genetics.

K.E. van Holde is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biophysics and Biochemistry at Oregon State University. Dr. van Holde's major research interest is the structure of chromatin; his work resulted in theaward of an American Cancer Society Research Professorship in 1977 and hiselection to the National Academy of Sciences in 1989. He has received Guggenheim, NSF, and EMBO Fellowships and is the author of two books and more than 175 scientific papers.

Kevin Ahern is a Senior Instructor in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Oregon State University, where he pioneered the development of Web-based courses for teaching biochemistry. He is a contributing editor to Science magazine and a columnist for Genetic Engineering News. He has edited two books, Biotechnology Software Reports - Computer Applications for Molecular Biologists and The Biotechnology Software Directory, A Buyer's Guide, and is the founder of DaVinci Press Ink, a scientific software consulting firm. Dr. Ahern's teaching experience includes undergraduate and graduate biochemistry courses.
