CHEM 3820 - Biochemistry I


Goals: Living organisms can be described as open thermodynamic systems in which exergonic and endergonic events are coupled in the process of growth and reproduction. We will examine aspects of cellular metabolism with particular attention to the integration and regulation of cellular systems. Modern biochemical techniques will be introduced in laboratory exercises. 

Content: Molecular basis of cellular function, protein structure/function relationships, enzyme function and kinetics, reaction mechanisms, energetics and catabolism, biosynthesis of cellular macromolecules. 

Taught: Fall term.

Prerequisites: BIOL 3060 and CHEM 3460, or permission of instructor. BIOL 3050 is strongly recommended.
Corequisite: BIOC 3820 Biochemistry I LAB

Credits: 4
