Biochemistry is the study of the chemical compositions of living organisms and of the chemical reactions that occur within them.

Providing a detailed overview for those wishing to familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, Biochemistry describes in accessible language the most important developments and achievements in the field, identifies key ideas, and covers the essentials for anyone looking for a concise review of the modern aspects of biochemistry.
