Reviews

@from:W.W. Christie @qu:...this is one of a select group of books in the lipid field that I would expect to find in every biological library. @source:Lipid Technology Newsletter @from:W.I. Gruszecki @qu:...I would recommend this book both for students who have already taken an introductory course in biochemistry and for scientists researching lipids, lipoproteins and biomembranes. @source:Journal of Plant Physiology
