by DM Vasudevan, Sreekumari S, Kannan Vaidyanathan

Biochemistry is the branch of science concerned with the chemical and physicochemical processes and substances which occur within living organisms. This textbook is the 10th edition of the “Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students”. This book contains 6 sections. The first section covers the chemical basis of life, where molecules found in the human body are introduced to the students. The second section deals with general metabolism. The third section is clinical and applied biochemistry, where the emphasis is given to clinical applications and the relevance of the study of biochemistry for understanding medical problems. The fourth section focus on nutrition and the fifth section describes molecular biology including molecular diagnosis. The final section contains laboratory medicine, HIV, COVID, cancer and other advanced topics. A major attraction of this edition is the incorporation of clinical case studies in almost all chapters. Essay questions, short notes, multiple choice questions and viva voce type questions are given at the end of every chapter. These questions are compiled from the question papers of various universities during the last decade and have been suitably rephrased to satisfy the evaluation criteria of the new curriculum.
