Biochemistry Online

  • Interesting idea, nicely put together
  • Nothing significant
Before you explore this one, read the author’s preface entitled “Why Chemical Logic?” In it, he provides a rational explanation for his arrangement of topics in teaching biochemistry and explains why they differ from more modern presentations. The approach is interesting and radical, starting with lipid structure and then moving to protein structure, carbohydrate structure, DNA/genomics/proteomics, binding, transport/kinetics, catalysis, oxidation/phosphorylation, and finally, signal transduction. Each of these items is hierarchically organized with subtopics that lead, via hyperlinks, to more information. On-line textbook lovers will enjoy the way this is laid out with extensive text descriptions interlaced with images as appropriate. After looking at the site, I was impressed enough to rethink how I will teach these same subjects in my own classes.
