Biochemistry 4th ed./ Donald Voet and Judith G. Voet
Print Location: QP514.2 VOE
This textbook is a distillation of experiences in teaching undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania and Swarthmore College and is intended to provide such students with a thorough grounding in biochemistry. The authors assume that students who use this textbook have had the equivalent of one year of college chemistry and sufficient organic chemistry so that they are familiar with basic principles and nomenclature.

Biochemistry, 5th ed./ Jeremy M. Berg, John L. Tymoczko and Lubert Stryer
Print Location: QP514.2 STR
The fifth edition of Biochemistry introduces a philosophical shift in biochemistry while maintaining the clear and inviting style that has distinguished the preceding four editions. Two new chapters are introduced enabling students to grasp the power of new insights in the edition.  These chapters are  "Biochemical Evolution" (Chapter 2) and "Exploring Evolution" (Chapter 7).

Schaum’s Outlines: Biochemistry, 3rd ed./Philip W. Kuchel and Gregory B. Ralston
Print Location: QP518.3 SCH
This edition covers developments in  biochemistry in  particularly in molecular biology, signal transduction, and protein structure. Developments in these areas have tended to overshadow other, often more traditional, areas of biochemistry such as enzyme kinetics.The style of presentation in the current edition continues that of the first edition, with liberal use of didactic questions that attempt to develop concepts from prior knowledge, and to promote probing of
the gaps in that knowledge. Thus, the book has been prepared through the efforts of many participants who have contributed in their areas of specialization; we have been joined in this endeavor by several new contributors whose sections are listed above.
