Features of This Companion Web Site
Each chapter in the textbook has a corresponding section on the Companion Web Site that contains
to help you succeed in your Biochemistry course.
sections parallel the organization of the individual chapters in the textbook, withhyperlinks to key concepts, figures, and pathways.
sections contain hyperlinked summaries of the important concepts from each chapter.
sections, which define the important terms from the text on a chapter-by-chapterbasis, also include hyperlinks to appropriate figures.
sections help you learn and retain the numerous terms, names, structures, enzymes, andpathways encountered in biochemistry. The
sections contain over 6000 queries to giveyou a thorough review and to make it possible to return many times without encountering thesame question twice.
When you're not on-line you can continue your study of biochemistry by using the CD-ROM found in theback of the book. The material available on this web site can also be found on the CD-ROM.
Connectivity to Expanded Information on the Internet
The internet provides an incredible amount of information in Biochemistry. We have included hyperlinksbetween the concepts, enzymes, and molecules covered on the Companion Web Site to relatedinformation found on hundreds of external web sites. In doing so, the Companion Web Site provides anintellectual bridge between the textbook and an evolving body of knowledge that will undoubtedly growwith time, making this site a tool for learning biochemistry and an ongoing reference.
