Hours: 4
A survey course covering a range of topics for the non-major. The first forty percent of the class will serve as an overview of the major organic functional groups found in biochemistry. The latter sixty percent will focus on metabolism, the properties of biomolecules, and the chemistry of biological processes. Throughout the course examples will be cited of the biochemical basis of disease and current pharmaceutical treatments of these disorders.
Prerequisites: CHEM 1100 and 1110.
Notes: Does not count towards a Chemistry major or minor. This course may be used as a substitute for the INST Natural Foundations requirement.
