More Information

Section Description

Biochemistry explores biological processes at the molecular level, examining the chemical reactions that make life possible. In the first part of the course we will discuss fundamental concepts that provide a basis for understanding the how?s and why?s of these reactions. We?ll address questions such as: How do biomolecules interact? What determines whether a reaction occurs? What factors influence the rates of cellular reactions? The second part of the course will explore how biological information is stored, maintained, and processed in cells. Our final focus will be on metabolism, specifically the synthesis and breakdown of carbohydrates and lipids and how these processes are controlled. Throughout the course we will explore how biochemical concepts can help us understand various diseases and how they apply to our everyday lives.
