Biochemistry The Molecular Basis of Life by Trudy McKee

Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life, provides a complete overview of the living state by explaining the functional and structural properties of biomolecules in the context of their biochemical reactions and impact on living organisms. It also places strong emphasis on critical thinking to help students diagnose real biochemical problems, and integrates fascinating applications of biochemistry in fields of health, agriculture, engineering, and forensics in order to relate concept to experience and show students the relevance of their learning to their future careers.


This is an excellent text for a one-semester biochemistry course. I'm delighted and thrilled by this revision and its coverage of genomics, proteomics, and macromolecular crowding. The illustrations are very good at helping students grasp key themes, the boxes provide necessary depth, and the
end-of-chapter questions are admirable in solidifying concepts. I highly recommend this text. --Holly Huffman, Arizona State University
The writing in McKee is clear, concise and easy to follow for the non-expert. The text does an excellent job in offering an up-to-date view of biochemistry, and the balance between chemistry and biology is especially good. --Andrew Shiemke, West Virginia University
The language and writing style are excellent and exceed those of other survey texts. The end-of-chapter exercises are also nicely orchestrated, beginning with relatively simple problems, gradually escalating to more challenging exercises. The authors offer an excellent balance between Chemistry and
Biology. In this respect, it is superior to other survey texts. It is not simply a text on molecular biology, but is also one that offers a chemical basis. --Anthony Toste, Missouri State University
