Medical Biochemistry combines basic science and clinical medicine in a thorough yet accessible, easy-to-read format, and this new edition reflects the latest information on genetic and molecular biology. A new chapter and additional online case studies cover new areas in the field and help clarify difficult concepts. You’ll still get the dynamic, full-color design that makes this biochemistry textbook such an effective resource - complete with case histories, advanced concept boxes, and color illustrations. And, as a Student Consult title, it is fully searchable online with a unique image library, case studies, USMLE-style questions, and online note-taking to enhance your learning experience.
- Demonstrates the relevance of biochemistry to practice through Clinical Boxes integrated into the text.
- Provides in-depth coverage of important topics in Advanced Concept Boxes on recent research and more.
- Explains difficult concepts by working through online case studies that help you apply basic knowledge to clinical practice.
- Presents the most common lab tests in Clinical Test Boxes that makes referencing and reviewing quick and easy.
- Offers Active Learning Boxes to allow you to test your knowledge at the end of each chapter and improve retention.
