This title gives students of medicine, other health professions and science a coherent account of biochemistry and molecular biology. Over 500 two-colour line illustrations help the reader visualise biochemistry and understand difficult concepts. Gene structure and function are introduced early in the book as they are so central to the control and regulation of biochemical processes. This organisation of content provides the reader with a logical sequence of events that aids learning. 


"There are many general biochemical textbooks on the market today and Campbell's textbook stands the test of time on the basics...This is an ideal introductory text for 1st year undergraduates, in biological or medical sciences, and for keen A level students. A particular strength of the book is the chapter summaries that help guide a reader into the topic area." Journal of Biological Education, 2006
