CHEM T 550 Introductory Biochemistry (Graduate)
Topics include protein composition and structure, enzyme kinetics, catalytic and regulatory strategies, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids and cell membranes; transducing and storing energy – metabolic cycles, responding to environmental changes.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Discuss how structure of biomolecules determines their overall biological function.
- Explain how various cellular factors impact the mechanisms that regulate metabolic pathways.
- Analyze and describe the biochemical principles that effect humans.
- Analyze, evaluate, and discuss the contributions of biochemistry to society.
- Critically evaluate current research and communicate an understanding of the scientific literature in biochemistry.
