BIOC 3830 - Biochemistry II
Goals: To continue the process of understanding the molecular design of living systems begun in Biochemistry I. Special emphasis is placed on instrumental methods of structure elucidation and the use of contemporary computational methods. The understanding of important anabolic and catabolic pathways of biologically important non-protein molecules, and the integration of these pathways within the metabolic cycle is the focus of study.
Content: The general integration of metabolism including carbohydrate, glycogen, amino acid, and fatty acid metabolism. The biosynthesis of lipids, steroids, amino acids, and nucleic acids. The process of photosynthesis.
Taught: Annually, spring term
Prerequisites: BIOC 3820 and CHEM 3550
Corequisite: BIOC 3830 - Biochemistry II lab
