Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry 6th edition review
As the authors completed their work on this Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry PDF 6th edition, they were again struck by the remarkable changes in the field of biochemistry that have occurred between editions. For example, the volume of new information was coming everyday from high-throughput DNA sequencing, x-ray crystallography, and the manipulation of genes and gene expression, to cite only three examples, challenges both the researchers and the students studying Biochemistry for the first time. So, the authors goal here was to strike a balance: to include new and exciting research findings without making the book overwhelming for students.
This Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry 6th edition reflects much of the new materials that they have added reflects their increasingly sophisticated understanding of regulatory mechanisms. Also includes those involved in altering the synthesis of enzymes and their degradation, those responsible for the control and timing of DNA synthesis and the cell cycle, and those in response to changes in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins over time in the environment and in different cell types.
The researches in the field of biochemistry progresses in parallel with the development of better tools and techniques. Therefore, the authors have highlighted some of these important developments. Chapter 9, DNA Based Information Technologies has been significantly revised to add the latest advances in genomics and next-generation sequencing. Finally, they have devoted considerable attention in making the text and the art more useful to students learning biochemistry for the first time. Those who are familiar with the book, will obviously notice the changes as soon as they crack the cover.
David L. Nelson was born in Fairmont, Minnesota and received his BS in Chemistry and Biology from St. Olaf College in 1964. He achieved his PhD in Biochemistry at Stanford Medical School under Arthur Kornberg. Nelson was a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Medical School with Eugene P. Kennedy, where Kennedy was one of Albert Lehninger’s first graduate students. In the year 1982, Nelson joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1971 and became a full professor of Biochemistry. He was the Director of the Center for Biology Education at the University of Wisconsin–Madison for eight years.
Michael M. Cox, born in Wilmington, Delaware, completed his graduation from the University of Delaware in 1974. In his first Biochemistry course, Lehninger’s Biochemistry was a major influence in refocusing his fascination with biology and inspired him to pursue a career in Biochemistry. After graduation, Cox went to Brandeis University for his doctoral work with William P. Jencks. After that he went to Stanford in 1979 for postdoctoral study with I. Robert Lehman. In 1992, he moved to the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1983 and became a full professor of Biochemistry.
