Metabolic pathways used to be taught, in depth, in courses like Biochemistry and Microbiology.  With the advent of new techniques and sub-disciplines, like structural biology and molecular genetics, the emphasis on metabolism has diminished.  Many experts agree that metabolism should be taught, yet many lack the motivation and the tools to teach metabolism.  A unique compilation, Tour Guide to Metabolism contains interesting metabolic vignettes, problem sets, case studies, and stories (organized by pathway) that will involve and motivate students to learn about metabolism.
