Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students

by DM Vasudevan, Sreekumari S, Kannan Vaidyanathan

Biochemistry is the branch of science concerned with the chemical and physicochemical processes and substances which occur within living organisms. This textbook is the Eighth edition of the “Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students”. A major attraction of this edition is the incorporation of clinical case studies in almost all chapters. This feature will help the students to identify the clinical relevance of the biochemistry. Further, clinically relevant points were added in most of the chapters. Rapid progress has been made in the area of molecular biology during past few years, and these advances are to be reflected in this book also. This textbook is divided into 6 sections and consists of total 50 chapters. Essay questions, short notes, multiple choice questions and viva voce type questions are given at the end of almost every chapter. These questions are compiled from the question papers of various universities during the last decade. These questions will be ideal for students for last-minute preparation for examinations. There are about 1,000 figures, 200 tables and 200 boxes are provided in this textbook, altogether making the book more student-friendly.
