Biochemical Calculations: How to Solve Mathematical Problems in General Biochemistry

Designed to supplement and complement any standard biochemistry text or lecture notes, this book helps provide a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by use of elementary mathematics in understanding properties and behavior of biological molecules. It provides a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by using elementary mathematics to explore the properties and behavior of biological molecules. The text discusses such topics as: Aqueous Solutions and Acid-Base Chemistry Chemistry of Biological Molecules Bioenergetics Enzymes Spectrophotometry and Other Optical Methods Isotopes in Biochemistry. Sample problems are solved completely in a step-by-step manner, and the answer to all practice problems are given at the end of the book. With Biochemical Calculations, 2nd Edition , students will gain confidence in their ability to handle mathematical problems, discovering that biochemistry is more than memorization of structures and pathways. Summary: Good bookRating: 5I received this book for the class. It helpful book for understanding and use typically rules for solve biochemical problems.Summary: The book is really goodRating: 5This book is definitely the best to read for anyone who deals with buffers biological systems protein purifications and so on. It reveals a lot of details so important for a practical chemist to know. The information inside of this book will definitely help you to save your time and money. It will in a very good and understandable way explain the most intricate questions. It can possibly change your vision of numerous key processes. One of the best advantages is that there is very little "water " in this book - you won't have to read 100 pages to get to the main idea. Really recommend to the chemistry majors. Summary: Theching Quantitative BiochemistryRating: 5As a biochemistry teacher, I find that a large number of our students are defficient in their quantitative skills. This is because many of them are biology majors, who do not have the best math background. This relatively inexpensive volume bridges the math gap for these students. It also provides the teacher with tools that increase his efficiency in dealing with the problem, without taking too much time away from the materials in the course syllabus. Although it is an older book, there is no modern replacement for what it does.Summary: Still Valuable After All These YearsRating: 5I have taught Biochemistry and Enzymology at the undergraduate and graduate level for over 20 years, and have recommended this book every year, to every student. Although the field of biochemistry has changed greatly during this time period, certain fundamental concepts have not changed at all, and remain central to a true understanding of how to do biochemistry. These include acid/base chemistry, energetics, enzyme kinetics, spectrophotometry, and isotopes. Of these, the first three gnerally give beginning (and even some advanced)students the most difficulty. In "Biochemical Calculations" Dr. Segel provides excellent explanations of the most important aspects of these topics.
