Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology 325: Biochemistry

Credits 3

This course provides students with a detailed examination of protein structure and function, focusing on the role of proteins in molecular recognition and catalysis. Topics include: techniques used to characterize proteins; enzyme kinetics and mechanisms; signal transduction across membranes; bioenergetics; catabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates; and integration of metabolism and disease. Students will actively participate in group problem-solving, and gain experience reading and critiquing scientific journal articles. Applies to the Molecular/Cell requirement for the Biology major.
