Medical biochemistry is an essential component of curriculum for all
categories of health professionals. This lecture note on Medical biochemistry
integrates and summarizes the essentials of the core subject. Topics covered
includes: Conformation of biomolecules, structure and their relationship to
biological activity, synthesis and degradation of major metabolites, Production
and storage of energy, Biocatalysts and their application, Intercellular
communication by hormones, Molecular events in gene expression and regulation.

This lecture note
covers the following topics: Glycolysis is Energy Conversion, Glyceraldehyde
Phosphate Dehydrogenase, Phosphoglycerate Kinase, Phosphoglycerate Mutase,
Enolase, Net Reaction, Maintaining Redox Balance, NAD + Binding, Control of
Glycolysis, Gluconeogenesis, Formation of Phosphoenopyruvate, Oxaloacetate

Modern Genetic Analysis was written for instructors and
students who need a textbook that supports the “DNA first” approach. This
departure from the traditional historical unfolding of genetics has had some
significant side effects chief among them, a more streamlined presentation in
which genetic principles stand in bolder relief.
