Kinetics for Bioscientist
by Peter Klappa
Publisher: BookBoon 2009
Number of pages: 221
The subject of reaction kinetics includes analysis of how fast reactions occur, the predictions of concentrations of reactants and products and how reactions can be altered by changing conditions. The aim of the book is to introduce the concepts of reaction kinetics with a problem-centered focus. Other than some basic mathematical skills you do not need to have any previous knowledge of the subject.

The human organism is a true ecosystem composed of human cells, bacteria, fungi, algae, and viruses. As such, humans are not unlike other complex ecosystems containing microbial assemblages observed in the marine and earth environments.

This is a short and easy-to-read biochemistry book: proteins as the body's worker molecules, X-ray crystallography, NMR: magnets and radio waves, structure-based drug design: from the computer to the clinic, beyond drug design.
Structural biochemistry is a branch of the life sciences which combines biology, physics, and chemistry to study living organisms. Biochemistry involves studying the cells, and the functions of its components, since it focuses on biomolecules.
