This concise and up-to-date text provides medical students with a complete introduction to biochemistry in its clinical context. It is also an appropriate text for science courses allied to medicine.
Jocelyn Dow, Gordon Lindsay and Jim Morrison are at the University of Glasgow, teaching biochemistry to a range of students including those studying medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine.
The clear, descriptive narrative takes the reader from the simplest biomolecules through macromolecular complexes to tissues and whole body function, with profuse references to relevant clinical aspects. Illustrated with elegant four-colour diagrams, this book will prove ideal for preclinical and junior science undergraduates. Michael G. Harrington Department of Biochemistry, University College Dublin
