Biochemistry – Stryer – 8 Edition
Biochemistry makes the language of the course as accessible as possible. Its straightforward and logical organization enhances clarity by stepping the reader through processes and helping them navigate complex pathways and mechanisms. In this edition, as in all previous editions, the authors thoroughly revised the text with an eye for clarity, rewriting and reorganizing discussions where advances in the field have given us a different perspective on biochemistry.
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.
Biochemistry helps students see their own lives in the 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.
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.
Evolution is evident in the structures and pathways of biochemistry, and is woven into the narrative of the textbook.
