The textbook is clearly written, and is suitable for advanced students, e.g. during their master and PhD course time. It is very suited also for postdocs and young scientists as a textbook if they change fields in their research. The textbook represents a thorough and detailed description of the topics in each of the chapters. As the book selects very important topics of present fundamental research and relevant in medical biochemistry, it can supplement any of the text books in biochemistry and basic medicine already on the market.The textbook is clearly written, and is suitable for advanced students, e.g. during their master and PhD course time.
