Carbohydrate Metabolism: Theory and Practical Approach


Series: Nutrition and Diet Research Progress
BISAC: HEA017000

Carbohydrate Metabolism: Theory and Practical Approach consists of original chapters and provides an updated and unique source of information for all those interested in the fundamentals of carbohydrate metabolism and its associated processes. Although the authors assume that most readers/students have at least introductory knowledge of carbohydrate metabolism, they have attempted to compile and edit the invited chapters written by experts in a way that even a stranger to this field could easily understand and comprehend. The book will be useful for B.Sc., M.Sc., PhDs (Biochemistry, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Botany, Zoology, Bioinformatics, etc), and medical students including MBBSs and MDs in search of a guide to help them through a vast field of knowledge. Moreover, the book is also very useful for students preparing for various competitive examinations such as CSIR, ICMR, DBT and ICAR JRF/NET.
