BIOC 3820 - Biochemistry I (with Lab)


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.

 

In addition to the required prerequisites, CHEM 3460 is strongly recommended.

Taught: Fall term

Prerequisites: BIOL 1510 and CHEM 3450

Note: Students must concurrently register for a lecture and a corresponding 0-credit lab section of this course.

Credits: 4
