It was aimed at Nursing students; I felt that a book on Applied Biochemistry is very much needed to comply with the requirements of the new Nursing model syllabus of Indian Nursing Council (INC). This book covers all the topics in the INC syllabus. This book is an attempt to provide complete text book which students and teachers will find it easy to read and understand. Emphasis has been laid on clarity and accuracy of the subject with addition of updated information on the subject.
This book is concise and lucid, offering students an innovative, adoptive and valuable presentation on the subject. The book has been divided into thirteen units which are further divided into chapters covering fundamental concepts of biochemistry, lipids, proteins, enzymes, qualitative tests. The central theme has been carefully projected with the help of diagrams, figures, illustrated tables, flow charts and schematics. Question bank and other features at the end of each unit.
