Essentials of Biochemistry By Pankaja Naik

The second edition of this comprehensive guide provides undergraduate medical students with the most up to date information in the field of biochemistry. Divided into 35 chapters, the book covers all aspects of the subject, from cell and membrane transport, to chemistry of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins, to metabolism, and finally molecular biology and biochemistry of specific disorders, connective tissues and muscles. The last section discusses biochemical techniques such as chromatography and electrophoresis. Each chapter begins with an outline and ends with a self-assessment section which includes long and short answer questions, multiple choice questions and Essentials of Biochemistry reviews.
