Understanding Biochemistry series
Understanding Biochemistry is an essential online resource for post-16 students, teachers and undergraduates, providing up-to-date overviews of key concepts in biochemistry and molecular biosciences. The Understanding Biochemistry issues of Essays in Biochemistry are Open Access publications, meaning that these issues are freely available online to readers
Coming in 2017:
Chemistry for Biochemists - Professor Kathryn Scott (University of Oxford)
Metabolism and its control - Dr Markus Ralser (Cambridge University)
