The “Gold Standard” in Biochemistry text books, Biochemistry 4e, is a modern classic that has been thoroughly revised. Don and Judy Voet explain biochemical concepts while offering a unified presentation of life and its variation through evolution. Incorporates both classical and current research to illustrate the historical source of much of our biochemical knowledge.
About the Author
Donald Voet received a Ph.D. in chemistry from HarvardUniversity and did postdoctoral research in the Biology Departmentat MIT. Don took up a faculty position in the department ofchemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, upon completing hispostdoctoral work. He has been a visiting scholar at OxfordUniversity, the University of California San Diego, and theWeismann Institute of Science in Israel.

Voet and Pratt’s 4th edition of Principles ofBiochemistry, challenges readers to better understand thechemistry behind the biological structure and reactions occurringin living systems. The latest edition continues this tradition,and additionally incorporates coverage of recent research andan expanded focus on preparing and supporting students throughoutthe course. With the addition of new conceptualassessment content to WileyPLUS, providing the opportunityto assess conceptual understanding of key introductorybiochemistry concepts and retrain themselves on theirmisconceptions.
Voet’s Principles of Biochemistry, Global Edition addresses the enormous advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of structural biology and bioinformatics. It provides a solid biochemical foundation that is rooted in chemistry to prepare students for the scientific challenges of the future. New information related to advances in biochemistry and experimental approaches for studying complex systems are introduced. Notes on a variety of human diseases and pharmacological effectors have been expanded to reflect recent research findings. While continuing in its tradition of presenting complete and balanced coverage, this Global Edition includes new pedagogy and enhanced visuals that provide a clear pathway for student learning.
