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.
