Book Preface

The last several years have seen enormous advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of macromolecular structure and function and in molecular biology. Against this backdrop, we asked, “What do students of modern biochemistry really need to know and how can we, as authors, help them appreciate the details without losing sight of the big picture? ” We concluded that it is more important than ever to provide a solid biochemical foundation, rooted in chemistry, to prepare students for the scientific challenges of the future. With that in mind, we reexamined the contents of Fundamentals of Biochemistry, focusing on basic principles and striving to polish the text and improve the pedagogy throughout the book so that it is even more accessible to students. We added additional opportunities for students to check their understanding as they read. At the same time, we incorporated new material in a way that links it to the existing content, mindful that students optimally assimilate new information in the proper context. We believe that students are best served by a textbook that is complete, clearly written, and relevant to human health and disease.
