Course Description

This course is the field of science that investigates the chemical and molecular reactions that sustain life. The goal of this course is to study these reactions in connection to their role in biological systems. The course will begin with a discussion of the structure and function of the biomolecules involved in those important reactions. Students will then study bioenergetic principles that rule the synthesis and degradation of biological macromolecules. Finally, the integration and regulation of metabolic pathways will be discussed.

Prerequisites: CHEM2420 and BIOL3370

Co-requisite: CHEM3225
