This book covers basic biochemical concepts and focuses on biomolecules, metabolic pathways, bioenergetics, and biochemical physiology of man and other organisms. A new chapter on the recombinant DNA technology and its appliations; and new sections on post-translational events and modifications, protein targeting, and heat shock proteins reinforce the focus of the book and makes it up-to-date.
This edition also includes over 3000 multiple-choice questions (with Answers) for self-assessment. A large number of diagrams in the text would help the students to understand the concepts better.
With its coverage and focus, it would be a very useful textbook for students of biology, medicine, home scienece, agriculture, pharmacy, and veterinary science.
This new edition atempts to keep up with the important development in certain areas of biochemistry.
