Learn BIOCHEMISTRY without stressing out your brain CELLS
Trying to understand the chemical processes of living organisms but having trouble metabolizing the complex concepts? Here's your lifeline! Biochemistry Demystified helps synthesize your understanding of this important topic.
You'll start with a review of basic chemical concepts and a look at cell structures and cell division. Next, you'll study carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, and enzymes. Glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, and the control of chemical processes round out the coverage. Hundreds of examples and illustrations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter questions and a final exam help reinforce learning.
This fast and easy guide offers:
Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
Details on DNA and RNA
Coverage of hormones and neurotransmitters
A chapter on analytical techniques and bioinformatics
A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Biochemistry Demystified is your key to mastering this vital life sciences subject.
Fifteen to twenty billion years ago, the universe arose
as a cataclysmic eruption of hot, energy-rich subatomic
particles. Within seconds, the simplest elements
(hydrogen and helium) were formed. As the universe
expanded and cooled, material condensed under the influence
of gravity to form stars. Some stars became
enormous and then exploded as supernovae, releasing
the energy needed to fuse simpler atomic nuclei into the
more complex elements. Thus were produced, over billions
of years, the Earth itself and the chemical elements
found on the Earth today. About four billion years ago,
Inorganic Chemistry provides essential information in the major areas of inorganic chemistry. The author emphasizes fundamental principles?including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry ? and presents topics in a clear, concise manner.
Concise coverage maximizes student understanding and minimizes the inclusion of details students are unlikely to use. The discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets.
This text is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in the inorganic chemistry course. The text may also be suitable for biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and other professionals who wish to learn more about this subject are.

This is the fourth edition of a book written to serve both as a useful textbook for undergraduate courses in medicine and pharmacology, and also as a handy reference title for industry professionals. Each of the 27 chapters is sub-divided into 3 sections: (i) an introduction to the subject, (ii) a chemical or pharmacological classification -? each category of compound importantly contains International Non-proprietory Names (INN), British Approved Names (BAN) and United States Approved Names (USAN) wherever applicable, chemical names and proprietory names. (iii) the synthesis of various important members treated individually, a brief description of the synthesis, therapeutic applications of each compound, the necessary dosage applied in various diseases, and routes of administration. The book also deals well with the comprehensive mechanism of actions of the structure -? activity -? relationships (SARs); thus aiding the students' understanding. Clearly written, well referenced and fully up to date with recommended readings and self assessment questions, Prof. Kar has provided an accessible textbook for students of medicinal chemistry.
An updated edition of the ultimate guide to understanding biology
Ever wondered how the food you eat becomes the energy your body needs to keep going? The theory of evolution says that humans and chimps descended from a common ancestor, but does it tell us how and why? We humans are insatiably curious creatures who can't help wondering how things work — starting with our own bodies. Wouldn't it be great to have a single source of quick answers to all our questions about how living things work? Now there is.
From molecules to animals, cells to ecosystems, Biology For Dummies, 2nd Edition answers all your questions about how living things work.
Written in plain English and packed with dozens of illustrations, quick-reference
Cheat Sheets, and helpful tables and diagrams, it cuts right to the chase with fast-paced, easy-to-absorb explanations of the life processes common to all organisms.
More than 20% new and updated content, including a substantial overhaul to the organization of topics to make it a friendly classroom supplement
Coverage of the most recent developments and discoveries in evolutionary, reproductive, and ecological biology
Includes practical, up-to-date examples
Whether you're currently enrolled in a biology class or just want to know more about this fascinating and ever-evolving field of study, this engaging guide will give you a grip on complex biology concepts and unlock the mysteries of how life works in no time.
Medical and Paramedical graduates aspiring for higher education planning to take PG ought to appear in entrance examinations. These entrance examinations are usually patterned in objective type. Biochemistry forms an integral part of curriculum of medical and paramedical courses. It is an important subject and deals with various Chemical, Biochemical, and Physiological reactions and processes that take place inside a living system. Quite a large number of MCQs appear in PG medical and paramedica.
