About the Book

This book has been primarily designed to familiarize the students with the basic concepts of biochemistry such as biomolecules, bioenergetics, metabolism, hormone biochemistry, nutrition biochemistry as well as analytical biochemistry. The book is flourished with numerous illustrations and molecular structures which would not only help the students in assimilating extensive information on a spectrum of concepts in biochemistry, but also help them in retaining the concepts in an effective manner.
