A Concise Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry strengthens the evidenced strategy of integrating general, organic, and biological chemistry for a focused introduction to the fundamental connections between chemistry and life. The streamlined approach offers readers a clear path through the content over a single semester. The Third Edition integrates essential topics more effectively than any text on the market, covering core concepts in each discipline in just 12 comprehensive chapters. Practical connections and applications show readers how to use their understanding of chemistry in everyday life and future health professions. With an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking, the book promotes active and attentive learning, which now include NEW! media assets, Practicing the Concepts. Featuring coauthor Todd Deal, these 3 to 5 minute videos explore key concepts in general, organic, and biological chemistry that readers traditionally find difficult. Readers gain skills and deepen their knowledge as they watch the videos and then practice what they have learned with Pause & Predict problems and a series of follow up multiple-choice questions. The Third Edition places a greater emphasis on matching what professors teach in the classroom by increasing the coverage of biochemical applications in each chapter. A new design was created to highlight the career content in order to increase relevancy.

Published by New Science Press and distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Oxford University PressThis text introduces general principles of protein structure, folding, and function, then goes beyond these basics to tackle the conceptual basis of inferring structure and function from genomic sequence. It is the first book in a series, Primers in Biology, employing a modular design in whichchapters are divided into topics, each occupying one two-page spread that includes the relevant text, illustrations (in full color), definitions, and references.The book has five chapters. The first is an introduction to the principles of protein structure and folding, with emphasis on proteins' biophysical properties. The second describes the principles of the main biochemical functions of proteins, namely binding and catalysis, with a short section on theproperties of structural proteins. Chapter 3 covers the regulation of protein function, containing concise descriptions of all the regulatory mechanisms that operate on proteins, from pH to phosphorylation, with several sections on protein switches based on nucleotide hydrolysis. Chapter 4introduces the principles whereby structure and function are deduced from sequence, with illustrative examples. The final chapter addresses how data on protein structure is gathered, interpreted, and presented.Written for upper-level undergraduates and beginning graduate students, Protein Structure and Function is also be for working scientists needing an up-to-date introduction to the field.

This lab manual is organized and written to make the experiments more applicable to users' daily lives. This approach also serves to make the experiments more understandable. New updated background information and additional figures and pictures provide clearer representations of concepts to facilitate learning. Many labs relate specifically to allied health fields. An experiment on Acid Rain and Natural Buffers connects concepts of acids and bases to real life concerns. A safer and more environmentally conscious lab experience is provided by incorporating 4 major strategies in the laboratory procedures: smaller scale laboratory procedures which decrease chemical exposure and chemical waste; the substitution of non-hazardous chemicals for otherwise hazardous ones; the conversion of some basic tests to class-wide observations-demonstrations; and elimination of experimental tests of limited value. A chemistry lab manual for chemists or non-science professionals.
