Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry- Nelson and Cox, 6th Ed

Updated by The Biomics Admin on May 17, 2018
The new edition of Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry brings this remarkable text into a new era. Like its predecessors, Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, Sixth Edition strikes a careful balance of current science and enduring concepts, incorporating a tremendous amount of new findings, but only those that help illustrate biochemistry’s foundational principles. With this edition, students will encounter new information emerging from high throughput DNA sequencing, x-ray crystallography, and the manipulation of genes and gene expression, and other techniques. In addition, students will see how contemporary biochemistry has shifted away from exploring metabolic pathways in isolation to focusing on interactions among pathways. They will also get an updated understanding of the relevance of biochemistry to the study of human disease (especially diabetes) as well as the important role of evolutionary theory in biochemical research.

Molecular Cell Biology - Lodish, 8th edition

Updated by The Biomics Admin on July 6, 2018
Molecular Cell Biology has justly earned an impeccable reputation as an exciting and authoritative text. Avoiding an encyclopedic approach, the book Molecular Cell Biology - Lodish, 8th edition grounds its coverage in the experiments that define our understanding of cell biology.
