For four decades, this extraordinary textbook played a pivotal role in the way biochemistry is taught, offering exceptionally clear writing, and innovative graphics, coverage of the latest research techniques and advances, and a signature emphasis on physiological and medical relevance. Those defining features are at the heart of this new edition.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.

Physiological RelevanceBiochemistry helps students see their own lives in the study of life at the smallest scale. It presents pathways and processes in a physiological context to show how biochemistry works in different parts of the body and under different environmental and hormonal conditions

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



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

Precise, informative Illustrations - Each figure focuses on a single concept, clearly telling the story of a mechanism, pathway or process without the distraction of excess detail


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.
