MINI ATLAS OF BIOCHEMISTRY

D.M. VASUDEVAN
New Delhi, India

This is one of the best selling titles in the Anshan mini atlas series. It is an excellent revision guide to the broad subject of biochemistry that gives concise clear information in a pictorial easy to read format.

The book contains 30 chapters across 8 sections: the chemical basis of life, carbohydrate metabolism, lipid metabolism, amino acid metabolism, the integration of metabolism, proteins, nutrition and molecular biology. Each chapter is lavishly illustrated with full colour images and diagrams, which are clearly explained in a short, punchy way for greater ease of understanding.

The book also contains a free photo CD Rom so that the images can be seen in larger format on screen. In brief, this is an outstanding value for money pocket revision guide to biochemistry that will be highly valued and frequently read by students throughout their period of graduation.
