The response received by the first three editions of the book has been a matter of great satisfaction to us. Many students and teachers while appreciating our effort have suggested the incorporation of some additional topics. In order to meet this demand, we in this fourth edition of the book have added more than fifty pages covering all aspects suggested topics in the light of modern advancements of the subject.

This new edition provides an authoritative account of every aspect of Biochemistry of current interest and demonstrates progress in this subject that has been made in the recent past. Every topic included in this book is self-sufficient and has been profusely illustrated with well drawn figures. Each topic has been written in a clear explanatory style. This approach combines with an extensive cross referencing system, enable the reader to provide both straight-forward concepts and invaluable background information in the light of modern scientific context.

The chapters have been arranged in a conventional way because it may prove good for students to pass from one to another with good continuity.
