Editorial Reviews

Review

“Michal and Schomburg (Technische Univ. Carolo-Whilhelmina, Germany) have reorganized, updated, and greatly expanded (over 100 pages of new content) this unique resource, keeping it an essential biochemical reference. Summing Up: Essential. Biochemistry collections, upper-division undergraduates through professionals.”  (Choice, 1 August 2013)

“Biochemical Pathways, Second Edition is recommended for all students and researchers in such fields as biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, organic chemistry, and pharmacology. The book's illustrated pathways aids the reader in understanding the complex set of biochemical reactions that occur in biological systems.”  (Kingbook73.blogspot, 23 April 2013)

“This book, not too scary to read thanks to its compact size, served as a great reading for the incoming graduate students from the biology department and the chemical engineering department alike.”  (Biotechnology Journal, 1 January 2013)

From the Back Cover

The pathways and networks underlying biological function

Now in its second edition, Biochemical Pathways will continue to garner praise from students, instructors, and researchers for its clear, full-color illustrations of the pathways and networks that determine biological function.

Biochemical Pathways examines the biochemistry of bacteria, plants, and animals. It offers a quick overview of the metabolic sequences in biochemical pathways, the chemistry and enzymology of conversions, the regulation of turnover, the expression of genes, the immunological interactions, and the metabolic background of health disorders. A standard set of conventions is used in all illustrations, enabling readers to easily gather information and compare the key elements of different biochemical pathways. For both quick and in-depth understanding, the book uses a combination of:

  • Illustrations integrating many different features of the reactions and their interrelationships
  • Tables listing the important system components and their function
  • Text supplementing and expanding on the illustrated facts

In the second edition, the volume has been expanded by 50 percent. Text and figures have undergone a thorough revision and update, reflecting the tremendous progress in biochemical knowledge in recent years. A guide to the relevant biochemical databases facilitates access to the extensive documentation of scientific knowledge.

Biochemical Pathways, Second Edition is recommended for all students and researchers in such fields as biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, organic chemistry, and pharmacology. The book's illustrated pathways will aid the reader in understanding the complex set of biochemical reactions that occur in biological systems.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although the print copy of this book is an incredibly thorough and detailed reference on biochemistry, the Kindle edition is not adequate for serious research and reference work. The print aspect of the book is fine, but for reasons I do not understand, the definition on the diagrams is unclear. I could not zoom in on the diagrams, and the larger diagrams were poorly defined and too small to read. I definitely recommend against purchase of the Kindle edition of Biochemical Pathways.

This is an excellent book for every biochemist!! Nice explanations and complete diagrams. The only problem is that in the kindle version, the pathways can't scale and the images are blur and too tiny for seeing them...

If you are involved in molecular biology, molecular evolution or biochemistry is a perfect guide for your research. Now edited and updated with the more recent data it represents the perfect consulting book for undergraduate or graduate students.
