This comprehensive text thoroughly explains basic biochemical concepts while offering a unified presentation of life and its variation through evolution. Incorporates both classical and current research to illustrate the historical source of much of our biochemical knowledge. Contains a wealth of biochemical applications such as agricultural, pharmaceutical, medical and forensic. This edition has been updated to reflect the enormous advances in molecular and protein structure. Features increased emphasis on human disease, more end-of-chapter problems and extensive use of molecular biological techniques.
From the Preface
In the five years since the first edition of Biochemistry was published, the field of biochemistry has continued its phenomenal growth and at an ever-increasing pace. This expansion of our knowledge has been marked not so much by new paradigms, although there have been plenty of those, but by an enormous enrichment of almost every facet in the field. For example, the number of known protein and nucleic acid structures as determined by X-ray and NMR techniques has increased by over fivefold and, moreover, many of these structures have led to seminal advances in our understanding of a particular subfield. Likewise, the state of knowledge has exploded in such subdisciplines as eukaryotic and prokaryotic molecular biology, metabolic control, protein folding, electron transport, membrane transport, immunology, signal transduction, and so on. Indeed, these advances have affected our everyday lives in that they have changed the way that medicine is practised, the way in which food! is produced.
We have reported many of these advances in the second edition of Biochemistry and have thereby substantially changed nearly every section in it. We have, nevertheless, largely maintained the pedagogical framework of the first edition. Consequently, the Preface to the First Edition applies equally well to the Second Edition.
The textbook is accompanies by the following ancillary materials:
- A Solutions Manual, containing detailed solutions for all of the texts end-of-chapter problems.
- A CD-ROM containing most of the illustrations in the text. With computerized projection equipment, these full-color images can be shown in any prearranged order to provide slide shows to accompany lectures. Alternatively, they can be used to print transparencies.
- A diskette containing KINEMAGES, computer animated color images, of selected proteins and nucleic acids that permit the student to manipulate these macromolecules in three dimensions.
In addition, we shall continue our previous practice of annually publishing Supplements to Biochemistry that summarize the highlights of the preceding years biochemical advances. The first of these ~ 80-page Supplements will be available in June 1996 and can be obtained either individually or on a subscription basis.
Finally, we are particularly grateful to the many readers of the First Edition, students and teachers alike, who have taken the trouble to write to us with suggestions on how to improve the textbook and to point out errors they have found. We earnestly hope that the readers of the Second Edition will continue this practice.

It is the examples that I think make this book so wholesome.
However, as others have mentioned, the communication could be better. You always have to read twice before you perfectly get to what he says.
Also, it is intended to be a 'professor's' book. He gives so many details that although it all sounds like a fact and worth storing in memory, it isn't. It is hard to classify. Use this book, only if you are very much interested in the details of the subject. To my knowledge, a complete knowledge (as much as you can remember!) of the subject can take you straight to the field of your choice, which I am perfectly sure would not much difficulty learning since there'll not be a vastness that is not mentioned in Voet and Voet.
HOWEVER the BS that the CD won't run on my Mac Tiger (which gives me:
"The page "Guided Exploration 23 (Section 29-1)" has content of MIME type "application/x-spt". Because you don't have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can't be displayed."
I have installed everything with the disk.)
is publisher junk. I can't even send Wiley and Sons an email because the link won't go through.
Kudos to the authors, shame on the publishers.
at the end of each chapter, and then consult the answer book: a pedagogical mistake! For you to solve some real-world
problems, you can't just rely on the derivations and presentation of their formulae, they need to show how the formulae can
be combined and rearranged to solve problems. Great color illustrations and plenty of detail, but not practical.
