Modern Topics in Biochemistry
Structure and Function of Biological Molecules
by Thomas P. Bennett and Earl Frieden
 
Modern biochemistry has evolved into a massive and intriguing interdisciplinary field. As a liaison between chemistry and biology, it has become the subject which introduces chemists to biology and biologists to chemistry.

The very nature of this science accounts for its steady introduction into both the biology and chemistry curricula during the past decade. Because of the usual arrangement of college programs, biochemistry has generally been reserved for students in their junior and senior years of study. However, significant reorganization of the biology and chemistry curricula now underway in most colleges and universities should permit - and often require - beginning undergraduates to study in some detail this fascinating subject..




This book was written with these students in mind.

Our objective is to allow beginners to move into modern molecular biochemistry and to be carried on to more difficult areas without getting bogged down. 

We have thus emphasized the biologically important chemical compounds and reaction mechanisms which the cell uses again and again in widely diverse processes.

We hope that anyone with some knowledge of science and curiosity about biochemistry will find in this book stimulating discussions and appropriate answers to his questions about the chemistry of life.
