Description

This first book to adopt a problem-based approach teaches the true basics of the subject through illustrated everyday case studies. The editor's extensive experience in writing textbooks and his close relationship to the authors ensure that the contributions are presented in a pedagogically uniform and highly motivating fashion. Each chapter introduces a different biological problem taken from everyday lab work, such that students learn how to think in order to solve problems in biology by using techniques and tools taken from chemistry.
A must-have for students in chemistry, biology and biochemistry.
