Book description

Gain a full understanding of the principles of biochemistry as it relates to clinical medicine The Thirty-First Edition of Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry continues to emphasize the link between biochemistry and the understanding of disease states, disease pathology, and the practice of medicine. Featuring a full-color presentation and numerous medically relevant examples, Harper's presents a clear, succinct review of the fundamentals of biochemistry that every student must understand in order to succeed in medical school. All 58 chapters help you understand the medical relevance of biochemistry: *Full-color presentation includes more than 600 illustrations*Case studies emphasize the clinical relevance of biochemistry *NEW CHAPTER on Biochemistry of Transition Metals addresses the importance and overall pervasiveness of transition metals*Review Questions follow each of the eleven sections*Boxed Objectives define the goals of each chapter*Tables encapsulate important information*Every chapter includes a section on the biomedical importance of a given topic Applauded by medical students and online reviewers for its currency and engaging style, Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry is essential for USMLE (R) review and the single-best reference for learning the clinical relevance of any biochemistry topic.
