Paired for the first time with SaplingPlus the most innovative digital solution for biochemistry students. Offering the best combination of resources to help students visualise material and develop successful problem-solving skills in an effort to help students master complex concepts in isolation, and draw on that mastery to make connections across concepts.
Clinical Insights - Wherever appropriate, pathways and mechanisms are applied to health and disease in discussions. These applications show students how biochemistry is relevant to them while reinforcing the concepts they have just learned Evolutionary Perspective - Evolution is evident in the structures and pathways of biochemistry, and is woven into the narrative of the textbook as a thematic thread Case Studies - Written by Justin Hines, these case studies require critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and they incorporate applied biochemical concepts by introducing students to a biochemical mystery and allowing them to determine what investigations will solve it New_to_this_edition
Metabolic Map - Explore icons throughout the text denote topics where students are encouraged to take visual tours through the Metabolic Map within SaplingPlus to better see the connections between concepts and how pathways interrelate
Living Figures - The Living Figure icon sends readers to a SaplingPlus location where the same molecule represented in the figure can be found in manipulatable format Animated Technique Videos - Whenever an EOC problem refers to a technique for which we have an animation, there is a link to those animations on SaplingPlus Problem-Solving Videos - With diagrams, graphs, and narration, these videos walk students through problems on topics that typically prove difficult
Industry Insight icon - sits next to text that describes advances and research in areas like drug development, medicine, renewable energy, and sensor technology
Jeremy M. Berg received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemistry from Stanford (where he did research with Keith Hodgson and Lubert Stryer) and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard with Richard Holm. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Carl Pabo in Biophysics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
John L. Tymoczko is Towsley Professor of Biology at Carleton College, where he has taught since 1976. He currently teaches Biochemistry, the Metabolic Basis of Human Disease, Oncogenes and the Molecular Biology of Cancer, and Exercise Biochemistry and co-teaches an introductory course, Energy Flow in Biological Systems.
Gregory J. Gatto, Jr., received his A.B. degree in chemistry from Princeton University, where he worked with Martin F. Semmelhack and was awarded the Everett S. Wallis Prize in Organic Chemistry.
Lubert Stryer is Winzer Professor of Cell Biology, Emeritus, in the School of Medicine and Professor of Neurobiology, Emeritus, at Stanford University, where he has been on the faculty since 1976. He received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School.
