Overview

Introduce your students to the latest developments in biotechnology and genomics with this bestselling text for the one-term course. Known for its logical organization, appropriate depth of coverage, and vibrant illustrations, BIOCHEMISTRY, 9th Edition, helps students synthesize the glut of information that has flooded the field since the decoding of the human genome, while showing them how biochemistry principles connect to their everyday lives. It incorporates current developments in Alzheimer’s research, RNA drug therapy, gene editing with CRISPR-Cas9, and revised coverage of topics such as aging, stem cell therapies, and G-coupled protein receptors. In-text features, like “Hot Topics” and “Biochemical Connections”, reflect the latest advances in the field -- and demonstrate how biochemistry applies to other fields like health and sports medicine. Problem sets, categorized by problem type, help students master chemistry and prepare for exams.

Mary K. Campbell was Professor Emeritus of chemistry at Mount Holyoke College, where she taught biochemistry, general chemistry, and physical chemistry, as well as advised undergraduates working on biochemical research projects. Her avid interest in writing led to the publication of many highly successful editions of INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY. She also coauthored BIOCHEMISTRY with Shawn O. Farrell. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Campbell received her Ph.D. from Indiana University and completed post-doctoral work in biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. Her areas of interest included researching the physical chemistry of biomolecules, specifically, spectroscopic studies of protein-nucleic acid interactions.

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).

Owen M. McDougal is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Boise State University. A native of upstate New York, his love of the outdoors inspired him to travel west for graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Utah in the laboratory of C. Dale Poulter. His work to elucidate the three-dimensional structures of neuropeptides by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy involved the application of physical chemistry to address problems in biological systems. Upon completion of his Ph.D., Dr. McDougal sought an academic environment that allowed him to share his passion for science with students. He taught general, organic, and biological chemistry at Southern Oregon University which allowed him to hone his instructional skills. Looking to advance his love for writing, Owen shifted to a faculty position in the research-intensive environment at Boise State University, where he investigates the bioactivity of marine and terrestrial natural products, including studies of food chemistry, nutraceutical products, and specialty chemicals.

  • BIOCHEMICAL CONNECTION BOXES. These boxes demonstrate how biochemistry topics relate to the real world in such high-interest areas as allied health, sports medicine, and biotechnology.
  • END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEM SETS. The book's exceptionally strong and varied end-of-chapter questions are grouped by question type and include references to section numbers to help students prepare for exams.
  • INTEGRATION WITH OWL. Improve student learning outcomes with OWLv2, the #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry! Developed by chemistry instructors, OWLv2 offers consolidated course materials with simplified reporting and gradebook features; easy assignment creation and management; personalized study tools that address different student needs and learning styles; and MindTap Reader, an eBook with apps and embedded video, audio, annotations, and activities. For this course, OWLv2 also includes iPad-compatible visualizations, tutorials, and simulations.
  • MARGINAL GLOSSARY. Per student and faculty requests, the marginal glossary featured on each page makes it easier for students to learn key terms and understand concepts while reading the narrative.
  • APPLY YOUR KNOWLEDGE BOXES. Interspersed within chapters, these boxes give students critical problem-solving experience.
  • PROVEN IN-TEXT LEARNING AIDS. Concise summaries and a broad selection of problems and exercises, as well as an annotated bibliography at the close of each chapter, help students review and apply what they've learned.
  • Q&A FEATURES. Student-friendly Q&A features, interspersed throughout the text where questions naturally arise for students, help students learn key biochemistry concepts more efficiently and organically.
