Biochemistry uses chemical principles to answer fundamental questions in life sciences. To utilize living cells and their functional components to solve challenging problems in technical applications, we need to understand how cells retrieve chemical energy from their environment and use the acquired chemical energy to do all the work necessary for living and replication.
Compendium in Biochemistry is a condensed volume written for students in the engineering programs. It explains the basic concepts of protein structure and function, enzyme kinetics, energy metabolism and basic biosynthetic pathways. Compared to non-living systems, living organisms have more complex biochemical processes, which can be comprehended by studying the most important metabolic pathways and their control mechanisms.
