about

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

Nutrition is becoming ever more central to our understanding of metabolic processes. Nutritional biochemistry offers insight into the mechanisms by which diet influences human health and disease. This book focuses on five aspects of this complex field of study: nutritional genomics, clinical nutrition and biochemistry, vitamins and minerals, macronutrients and energy, and cell function and metabolism.

Collected in this research compendium are recent studies within each of these topics. Each chapter contributes to a well-rounded and up-to-date picture of nutritional biochemistry. Appropriate for graduate-level and post-doctorate students, this book will stimulate further study into this important field of research.

Dr. Chad L. Cox is an adjunct professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences at California State University, Sacramento. He also teaches at Sacramento City College, the University of Phoenix, and the University of California, Davis. He holds a PhD in nutritional biology, a bachelor of scien...
