Biochemistry Reference is a self-contained series of articles for a wide range of biochemistry topics. With articles covering topics ranging from lipid chemistry to developmental biology, Biochemistry Reference was written with the biochemistry undergraduate or major in mind. This encyclopaedic app would be perfect to brush up on biochemistry before the start of your degree, help you with essays and support your revision right up to your last exam.

We really hope you like Biochemistry Reference. Our website has more details about the contents of the app, including a video app demonstration.
