Problem Sets Series: Case Studies in Biochemistry presents real world scenarios to help readers develop science process and reasoning skills. Each case study is used to demonstrate the application and analyzation of fundamental concepts. Critically important knowledge in enzyme kinetics, metabolism and protein structure are presented in a problem-based way to allow practice in data interpretation that is needed in the biochemistry classroom, laboratory, and in the STEM disciplines.
- Guides readers in applying knowledge directly to real world scenarios
- Aids in synthesizing information and applying science processes
- Offers guidance in contextualizing information and knowledge
