A comparison of the preceding edition of this textbook with the present edition indicates a number of revisions and additions in keeping with the rapid recent advances in the field of biochemistry. The presentation of the material closely follows the pattern of previous editions of the book, in which the factual and theoretical considerations are presented, followed by laboratory tests and exercises. References are included at the end of each chapter. Among the new material presented are discussions on enzymes, isotopes, colorimetric analyses and electrophoresis. The description, diagrams and explanations of the use of modern laboratory equipment, such as photoelectric colorimeters and the Warburg apparatus, are valuable additions. The authors have increased the accuracy and scope of the material presented by obtaining the aid of a number of authorities in various phases of biochemistry. These contributors have in some cases supplied complete new chapters and in other instances have revised
