About

Overview

Introduce your students to the latest developments in biotechnology and genomics with this new edition of Campbell and Farrell's best-selling text for the one-term course. Known for its logical organization, appropriate depth of coverage, and vibrant illustrations, BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th Edition, helps your students synthesize the flood of information that has inundated the field since the decoding of the human genome, while showing them how biochemistry principles connect to their everyday lives. The book incorporates up-to-date developments in stem cell research, cloning, and immunology and offers revised coverage of major topics, such as Molecular Biology. Balancing scientific detail with readability, the book is ideal for students studying biochemistry for the first time. For example, in-text questions and problem sets categorized by problem type help students master chemistry and prepare for exams, and "Biochemical Connections" demonstrate how biochemistry applies to other fields such as health and sports medicine. In addition, the book's revised state-of-the-art visual program improves learning outcomes and its innovative magazine articles, "Hot Topics in Biochemistry" now reflect the latest advances in the field. Count on BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th Edition, to lead the way in currency, clarity, and innovation for your one-semester biochemistry course

What's New

  • The #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry, OWLv2, is available for this text-now with new instructor features and enhanced functionality: a Dashboard that consolidates all course materials; easy, intuitive assignment creation and management; ability to preview and select activities/questions for each assignment; new assignment settings and options; improved gradebook; Personalized Study tools to help students focus their time on the key concepts and skills; and MindTap Reader™, a new eBook with apps and embedded video, audio, annotations, and activities. OWLv2 courses for Gen Chem, GOB, and Liberal Arts now include Quick Prep essential skills assignments that can be taken before the semester begins or during the first few weeks, to help students succeed in the course. For this course, OWLv2 also includes new interactive versions of the end-of-chapter questions from the text and new iPad-compatible visualizations, tutorials, and simulations.
  • New Hot Topics articles featured in Biochemistry Magazine Insert: The Hop Topics in Biochemistry Magazine which is bound inside the printed book and available online in the MindTap Reader features 15 articles that are hot topics in the biochemistry field right now. 8 articles are available in the printed book, and 7 extra articles are available in MindTap. The Hot Topics are great for in class discussions, or can be assigned as student presentations. The hot topics show how biochemistry is relevant and important to our lives-after all biochemistry is the chemistry of the human body.
  • Hot Topics in Biochemistry Magazine: Green Fluorescent Protein: Jellyfish and Green Monkeys, DNA and Family Trees: Who is a Relative, Diabetes: An epidemic for Modern Times, Just One Word: Nanotechnology, Small, Smaller, Smallest: Beyond the Electron Microscope to Single Molecules, HPV Vaccines: Waging the War on Cervical Cancer, Stem Cells: Hype or Hope?, Doping in Sports: Good Science Gone Bad, Aging – Looking for the Biochemical Fountain of Youth, The Science of Happiness and Depression, Humans vs. Flu, Malaria, G-Protein-Coupled Receptors, The Genetics of Breast Cancer, and Proteins and Magnets: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Biochemistry.
  • NEW BIOCHEMICAL CONNECTIONS. Several new Biochemical Connections demonstrate how biochemistry topics relate to the real world in high-interest areas such as allied health, sports medicine, and biotechnology. Biochemical Connections are now flowed in with the text where they are relevant to the conversation. These are meant to be read with the narrative, but they have a special design and magazine style voice to liven up the narrative! These are like crescendos in the narrative that keep student interest at a high level, and show them how biochemistry is a part of them and their daily lives.
  • New Marginal Glossary! Per student and faculty requests we added a marginal glossary to each page making it easier for students to learn key terms and understand concepts while reading the narrative.

Author Bio

Mary K. Campbell

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.

Shawn O. Farrell

Shawn O. Farrell, a native of Northern California, received his B.S. in biochemistry from University of California, Davis, studying carbohydrate metabolism. He completed his Ph.D. in biochemistry at Michigan State University, where he focused on the study of fatty acid metabolism. Dr. Farrell became interested in biochemistry while in college, as it was relevant to his passion for bicycle racing. He raced competitively for 15 years and now officiates bicycle races worldwide. He has taught biochemistry lecture and laboratory courses at Colorado State University for 16 years and now works for USCycling.
