Overview

Introduce the latest developments in biotechnology and genomics with the bestselling BIOCHEMISTRY, 9TH EDITION. Ideal for the one-term course, this approach is known for its logical organization, appropriate depth of coverage, and vibrant illustrations. A clear presentation helps students synthesize the wealth information flooding the field since the decoding of the human genome, while emphasizing how biochemistry principles apply to everyday lives. Content highlights current developments in Alzheimer’s research, RNA drug therapy, and gene editing with CRISPR-Cas9. Students review topics, such as aging, stem cell therapies, and G-coupled protein receptors, and see how biochemistry applies to other fields like health and sports medicine.

Mary K. Campbell, Mount Holyoke College

Mary K. Campbell was Professor Emeritus of chemistry at Mount Holyoke College, where she taught biochemistry, general chemistry, and physical chemistry, as well as advised undergraduates working on biochemical research projects. Her avid interest in writing led to the publication of many highly successful editions of this textbook. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Campbell received her Ph.D. from Indiana University and completed postdoctoral work in biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. Her areas of interest included researching the physical chemistry of biomolecules, specifically, spectroscopic studies of protein-nucleic acid interactions. She was also coauthor with Shawn Farrell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th Edition (Cengage Learning), as well as several editions of GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY by Bettelheim, Brown, Campbell, Farrell, and Torres.

Owen M. McDougal, Boise State University

Owen M. McDougal is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Boise State University. A native of upstate New York, his love of the outdoors inspired him to travel west for graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Utah in the laboratory of C. Dale Poulter. His work to elucidate the three-dimensional structures of neuropeptides by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy involved the application of physical chemistry to address problems in biological systems. Upon completion of his Ph.D., Dr. McDougal sought an academic environment that allowed him to share his passion for science with students. He taught general, organic, and biological chemistry at Southern Oregon University which allowed him to hone his instructional skills. Looking to advance his love for writing, Owen shifted to a faculty position in the research-intensive environment at Boise State University, where he investigates the bioactivity of marine and terrestrial natural products, including studies of food chemistry, nutraceutical products, and specialty chemicals.

Created by teaching chemists, OWLv2 is a powerful online learning system for chemistry with a unique Mastery Learning approach, which allows students to practice at their own pace, receive meaningful feedback and access a variety of learning resources to help them master chemistry and achieve better grades.

  • PROVEN IN-TEXT LEARNING AIDS. Concise summaries and a broad selection of problems and exercises, as well as an annotated bibliography at the close of each chapter, help students review and apply what they've learned.
  • MARGINAL GLOSSARY. Per student and faculty requests, the marginal glossary featured on each page makes it easier for students to learn key terms and understand concepts while reading the narrative.
  • END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEM SETS. The book's exceptionally strong and varied end-of-chapter questions are grouped by question type and include references to section numbers to help students prepare for exams.
  • INTEGRATION WITH OWL. Improve student learning outcomes with OWLv2, the #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry! Developed by chemistry instructors, OWLv2 offers consolidated course materials with simplified reporting and gradebook features; easy assignment creation and management; personalized study tools that address different student needs and learning styles; and MindTap Reader, an eBook with apps and embedded video, audio, annotations, and activities. For this course, OWLv2 also includes iPad-compatible visualizations, tutorials, and simulations.
  • Q&A FEATURES. Student-friendly Q&A features, interspersed throughout the text where questions naturally arise for students, help students learn key biochemistry concepts more efficiently and organically.
  • APPLY YOUR KNOWLEDGE BOXES. Interspersed within chapters, these boxes give students critical problem-solving experience.
  • BIOCHEMICAL CONNECTION BOXES. These boxes demonstrate how biochemistry topics relate to the real world in such high-interest areas as allied health, sports medicine, and biotechnology.
