VISUALS ARE THE FOUNDATION

Miesfeld and McEvoy built each chapter around essential figures to strengthen students' understanding of how biochemistry processes and structures work. In-figure captions, numbered steps and icons help students navigate the most complex biochemical processes. The vibrant, precise and information-rich molecular representations in the text are paired with state-of-the-art 3D interactive versions in the online homework and cutting-edge animations—many created using 3D technology—reinforce the book's visual emphasis.

EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAR WITH A DISTINCTIVE CHAPTER SEQUENCE

The text's distinctive chapter sequence highlights connections between key biochemical processes, encouraging students to consider how biochemistry works. The table of contents emphasises three big ideas: (1) the interdependence of energy conversion processes (2) the role of signal transduction in metabolic regulation and (3) biochemical processes affecting human health and disease, which ensure students develop a complete understanding of why biochemistry matters. The pedagogical foundation for each of these themes is that molecular structure determines chemical function.

EMPHASIS ON APPLICATIONS AND BIOMEDICAL EXAMPLES

Miesfeld and McEvoy consistently show why biochemistry matters. Opening vignettes provide an in-depth introduction to a biomedical application connected to the chapter's central topic. Real-life examples from nature help students understand how structure (of a protein, lipid, carbohydrate and more) impacts function. Additionally, human health examples, particularly discussions of human disease, mentioned throughout the text are especially relevant for the many students who pursue careers in medicine.

THOUGHTFUL PEDAGOGY AND ASSESSMENT

Biochemistry promotes mastery of biochemical concepts through its effective pedagogy. Concept Integration questions at the end of many numbered chapter sections challenge students to think critically and synthesise the concepts. Additional end-of-chapter pedagogy includes a plentiful, balanced mix of basic Chapter Review questions and thought-provoking Challenge Problems. Smartwork5 online homework offers book-specific assessment through an array of exercises including art-based interactive questions, interactive 3D molecular visualisation questions and much more.
