Overview

It’s alive! It’s alive! (Thanks to biochemistry, that is.) 

Biochemistry is the science of the chemical processes that allow for…well…life. If it moves, breathes, eats, or sleeps, biochemistry can probably explain how. So, it stands to reason that the fundamentals of biochemistry can get a little complicated. 

In Biochemistry For Dummies, you’ll explore the carbons, proteins, and cellular systems that make up the biochemical processes that create and sustain life of all kinds. Perfect for students majoring in biology, chemistry, pre-med, health-services, and other science-related fields, this book tracks a typical college-level biochemistry class. It simplifies and clarifies the subject with easy-to-follow diagrams and real-world examples. You’ll also get: 

  • Explorations of cell biology, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and other fundamental building blocks of life 
  • Discussions of the basic structures common to all living organisms 
  • Treatments of the microscopic details of life that make us all tick 

If you’re looking for a hand with some of the trickier parts of biochemistry—or you just need an accessible overview of the subject—check out Biochemistry For Dummies today!

Biochemistry For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Studying amino acids (the building blocks of proteins, which humans need to grow and develop) is essential in biochemistry. The four subgroups of amino acids are nonpolar, polar and uncharged, acidic, and basic. This Cheat Sheet provides a handy, quick reference to these four subgroups.
