The number one bestselling textbook for the introductory biochemistry course because it brings clarity and coherence to an often unwieldy discipline, offering a thoroughly updated survey of biochemistry’s enduring principles, definitive discoveries, and groundbreaking new advances with each edition.
This new Seventh Edition maintains the qualities that have distinguished the text since Albert Lehninger’s original edition—clear writing, careful explanations of difficult concepts, helpful problem-solving support, and insightful communication of contemporary biochemistry’s core ideas, new techniques, and pivotal discoveries. Again, David Nelson and Michael Cox introduce students to an extraordinary amount of exciting new findings without an overwhelming amount of extra discussion or detail. With this edition, W.H. Freeman and Sapling Learning have teamed up to provide the book’s richest, most completely integrated text/media learning experience yet, through an extraordinary new online resource; SaplingPlus. See ‘Instructor Resources’ and ‘Student Resources’ for further information. Show Less
- Chemical logic figures for each of the central metabolic pathways highlight the conservation of mechanism and illustrate patterns that make learning pathways easier.
- Mechanism figures help students understand the reaction process step by step, explaining a consistent set of conventions for each mechanism.
- Molecular structures created specifically for this book use consistent shapes and colour schemes.
- In-text Worked Examples take students through particular difficult equations to improve their quantitative problem-solving skills.
- More than 600 end-of-chapter problems give students further opportunity to practice what they have learned.
