The Flesh and Bones of Metabolism
The FLESH AND BONES OF METABOLISM presents a concise, accessible account of the metabolic aspects of biochemistry. This title covers all the key concepts medical students need with no gaps. It can be used either as an introduction to a topic, or as a revision aid. In Section 1, The Big Picture overview gives a descriptive overview of a subject in 8pp. In the High Return Facts section, 50 fundamental principles underlying a subject are set out. These 50 principles are expanded into double-page spreads in the 'Fleshed Out' section where double-page explanations of the key principles clearly convey what medical students need to know. Difficult concepts are depicted by cartoon-strip illustrations, which enable rapid understanding and assimilation of information. There is a separate volume that cover cell biology and the molecular biological aspects of the subject.Table of Contents
