CH 561 Biochemistry I (Fall: 3)
CH 231-232 or equivalent
This course is a two-semester introductory-level course in biochemistry.
Topics in the first semester concentrate on protein structure and function,
bioenergetics, kinetics and mechanisms of enzyme reactions, intermediary
metabolism, control of metabolic pathways, and photosynthesis. Topics in
the second semester concentrate on the structure of nucleic acids, recombinant
DNA technology, mechanisms of gene rearrangements, DNA replication, RNA
synthesis and splicing, protein synthesis, control of gene expression, membrane
transport, and hormone action. Experimental methods will also be discussed
as they relate to course topics.
