This text is intended for the one-semester introductory biochemistry text for sophomore/junior level, non-biochemistry majors. Most students who use this book are biology, agriculture, technology, nursing, physics, geology, or nutrition majors. A beginning biology, general chemistry, and at least one semester of organic chemistry are assumed as preparation. Noted for their ability to demonstrate the connection between biochemistry and students' lives, authors Mary Campbell and Shawn Farrell draw students into the material with stellar coverage of the latest research. The standard-setting illustration program enhances students understanding. The flexible organization of the text can be changed to suit the needs of specific courses and students, depending on the instructor's preference.
