CHEM 5410: Advanced Biological Chemistry I: Molecular Assembly and Information Flow
Credits: 3
Introduces the components of biological macromolecules and the principles behind their observed structures. Examines the means by which enzymes catalyze transformations of other molecules, emphasizing the chemical principles involved, and describes key metabolic cycles and pathways, the enzymes that catalyze these reactions, and the ways in which these pathways are regulated. Three class hours (Y) Prerequisites: One year of biochemistry; one year of organic chemistry; one semester of thermodyanmics.
CHEM 5420: Advanced Biological Chemistry II: Macromolecular Structure and Function
Credits: 3
Covers three main areas: (1) the structure and function of biological membranes, (2) complex biochemical systems and processes, including photosynthesis, oxidative phosphorylation, vision, neurotransmission, hormonal regulation, muscle contraction and microtubules, and (3) molecular biology, including DNA metabolism, protein synthesis, regulation of gene expression and recombinant DNA methodology. Three class hours,. (Y) Prerequistes: CHEM 7430 or permission of instructor.
