    MS 1's could you list what Biochem text you use and what school you attend?

    Also, are your Biochem labs useful? Do you do medically related experiments or is it more general biochem as in undergrade?

    What are your Biochem labs like? Thanks

    Speaking in general, the Lippencott Board Review book seems to be a good study aid [some people use it as primary] for Biochemistry.

    No book. And no lab. I use my undergrad biochem book, Leninger, (which is an awesome book!) for reference. They recommend Lippencott if we want to purchase a reference and Stryer as one to use in the library.

    We have no required text here except our syllabus, but the suggested reading is Marks Basic Medical Biochem here at UC.

    Strangely enough, there is no Biochemistry course at Mayo. The undergraduate course is required prior to matriculation. There is some biochemistry in the first year Molecular Biology & Genetics course. But you are expected to already know the standard biochemical pathways (Kreb's, ETC, Urea, Gluconeogenesis, etc.). The Molecular Biology professors often cite Lenninger or Voet Voet Pratt.

    We don't have a lab. I just used our biochem notes and Lippincott's Biochem.

    Dodge This--hello. I was wondering where you were, player.

    No lab for me. Stryer is the recommended text, and I have Garrett and Grisham from undergrad. I was also a biochem minor, so I think I'll be OK.
