CHEM 0315 - Biochemistry I with Lab

Credits: 4

A course for science majors that combines lecture and discussion to explore the fundamentals of biochemistry. Major topics are protein structure and function, enzyme kinetics and mechanism, and the energetics, intermediates and products of major metabolic pathways. Emphasis will be placed on fundamental concepts such as intermolecular interactions, enzyme catalysis and regulation. The course relies on a solid foundation in general and organic chemistry. Students may receive credit for either this course or CHEM 0313 , but not for both.

Prerequisites: CHEM 0201 .
