Active Classroom Environment
The new edition responds to instructor requests by providing new resources that aid in creating an active classroom environment:
    • NEW Online Case Studies, assignable and assessable, are easily to integrate into a course. Each online case study gives students practice in working with data, developing critical thinking skills, connecting topics and applying knowledge to real scenarios. We also provide instructional guidance with each case study (with suggestions on how to use the case in the classroom) and aligned assessment questions for quizzes and exams.
    • NEW Clicker Questions allow instructors to integrate active learning in the classroom and to assess students’ understanding of key concepts during lectures. Available in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.

Expanded Physiological Focus
Pulling from recent discoveries and advances, the new edition emphasizes the importance of learning the physiological and clinical side of biochemistry. New to this edition:
     • New section on “Mutations in Genes Encoding Hemoglobin Subunits Can Result in Disease” (Chapter 9)
     • 16 new clinical insights, demonstrating the relevance of human health and disease in biochemistry.

Increased Coverage of the Fundamentals
Working with instructors, the authors determined a need for greater emphasis on the fundamentals of biochemistry, especially metabolism (chapters 14 & 15). Expanded coverage includes:
     • Digestive enzymes
     • Protein digestion
     • Celiac disease
     • Energy
     • Phosphates in biochemical processes
