About the Author

Shawn O. Farrell, a native of Northern California, received his B.S. in biochemistry from University of California, Davis, studying carbohydrate metabolism. He completed his Ph.D. in biochemistry at Michigan State University, where he focused on the study of fatty acid metabolism. Dr. Farrell became interested in biochemistry while in college, as it was relevant to his passion for bicycle racing. He raced competitively for 15 years and now officiates bicycle races worldwide. He has taught biochemistry lecture and laboratory courses at Colorado State University for 16 years and now works for USCycling. Professor Farrell has written scientific journal articles about specific research projects and about laboratory teaching, as well as articles for sports publications, such as "Salmon, Trout, and Steelheader" magazine. He is co-author with Mary Campbell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 7e (Cengage Learning).

Lynn Taylor grew up in Minnesota and received her B.A. in Genetics from UC Berkeley. As a research assistant, she studied galactose oxidation in liver at Michigan State University, and cyctochrome c oxidase expression in yeast at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Ms. Taylor's interest in molecular biology led her to Colorado State University, where she obtained her M.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She has spent 15 years investigating the regulation and expression of key regulatory enzymes involved in maintaining acid-base balance in the kidney, and currently holds the position of senior research associate.

Format: Paperback
We teach a mixed class, chemistry, biology and pre-med majors. This book covers introductory topics that the chemists find easy but biology majors need to review (statistics, Beer's Law, etc.) Later, it covers molecular biology techniques that biologists are familiar with but chemistry majors are not! it is the best for a mixed class. It is clear and gives enough background that students can read it on their own and come prepared for lab....I have found no mistakes in the text.

Extensive background contents that will surely help students of non-Biochem major to catch up with the major ones. Good practice problems. Though I would highly suggest reading the book before going to the lab. A better organization of which chapter comes first also helps the students navigate around better as well. Four stars because of the way each chapter was organized in a somewhat random order that caused troubles to both the professors and the students to follow.

This Biochemistry manual offers incredible details and explanations, so the reader is not lost during an experiment. It also provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform the experiments, as well as a results sections where one may write in the data tables provided.

Experiments explained well and are usefull for real life work. For me it was a bit hard to understand sometimes.
