CHEM 374 - Biochemistry

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS, QFR

Biochemistry has been described as both the 'chemistry of life' and 'biology in atomic detail.' This is the third of three courses in a biochemistry sequence that includes CHEM 254 and BIOL 213. Building on the biochemical fundamentals and experimental techniques learned in these earlier courses, CHEM 374 focuses on a deeper understanding of biochemistry through the rigorous study of the structures and functions of proteins and other biomolecules in such processes as enzymatic catalysis, signal transduction, metabolism, and gene expression. Includes topics of current scientific and societal interest such as gene editing and/or the biochemistry and ethics of pesticides. Note: Students must register for both lecture and laboratory

Enrollment Limit: 16
Instructor: L. Ryno

Prerequisites & Notes: C- or better in CHEM 254 and BIOL 213.
