Introduction

Biochemistry: Fundamentals and Bioenergetics presents information about the basic and applied aspects of the chemistry of living organisms. The textbook covers the scope and importance of biochemistry, the latest physical techniques to determine biomolecular structure, detailed classification, structure and function of biomolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, vitamins, enzymes and hormones. Readers will also learn about processes central to energy metabolism including photosynthesis and respiration, oxidative phosphorylation, DNA replication, transcription and translation, recombinant DNA technology.

Key Features

  • - logical approach to biochemistry with several examples
  • - 10 organized chapters on biochemistry fundamentals and metabolism
  • - focus on biomolecules and biochemical processes
  • - references for further reading

Biochemistry: Fundamentals and Bioenergetics is a useful textbook for undergraduate students involved in courses in life sciences, biochemistry and other branches of natural sciences.

Foreword

It is immense pleasure to write the forward of the book titled “Biochemistry: Fundamentals and Bioenergetics” edited by Dr. Meera Yadav and Prof. H.S. Yadav, which is comprehensive and highly informative for the students. I also believe that teachers and scholars at every level and stage of their careers can enrich and strengthen their knowledge of biological chemistry by updates and practices presented in this book. The initial interest in the area of biological chemistry became intense as new tools and techniques of biotechnology came into existence. Biological chemistry is continuously and steadily progressing at the laboratory level and at the computational level. The authors and editors have chosen the specific topics and details that are important and relevant to the chemistry behind life sciences.

This book discusses a wide range of topics related to the fundamental and applied aspects of the chemistry behind life sciences. The book contains a range of topics, including the scopes and importance of biochemistry, the latest physical techniques to determine structures of biomolecules, detailed classification, structure and function of biomolecules like carbohydrates, lipids , amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, enzymes, hormones as well as the thermodynamics of life sciences and bioenergetics and metabolism of biomolecules. It also deals with photosynthesis and respiration, oxidative phosphorylation, DNA replication, transcription and translation, and recombinant DNA technology.

The book has contributions from scientists, teachers and research scholars. The editors have done a commendable job in bringing and collecting and compiling a wide range of excellent papers shared by expert researchers . The collection of expertise and knowledge has been shaped to provide a unique piece of work in the form of a book. I am very much confident that the book should prove to be a very useful source of knowledge to the students, teachers, research scholars, scientists, engineers and doctors in the disciplines of life sciences, microbiology, biochemistry, biotechnology and engineering.

I express my sincere appreciation to the editors for their contributions and I am sure that this book will be very handy and widely used especially by the aspiring young generation students who wish to create a niche in the field of biological chemistry.
