Biochemistry is the study of the chemical compositions of living organisms and of the chemical reactions that occur within them. This field of chemistry also studies the structure and function of biomolecules, as well as the process of gene replication and expression. This accessible title introduces readers to the fundamentals of this highly interesting science that has recently experienced explosive growth and attracted much popular attention. Providing a detailed overview for those wishing to familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, ""Biochemistry"" describes in accessible language the most important developments and achievements in the field, identifies key ideas, and covers the essentials for anyone looking for a concise review of the modern aspects of biochemistry.

About Monique LaBerge
Monique Laberge received a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from McGill University. Her postdoctoral training was conducted in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania, where she is now a senior research investigator. She taught protein structure and dynamics courses at Semmelweis University, where she was an invited scientist from 2000 to 2005. Her research and publications are in the field of biomolecular simulations focused on the role of dynamics in protein function. Dr. Laberge also wrote Cracking the GRE Chemistry, a compendium of her extensive chemistry tutorials.
