Unformatted text preview: Course Syllabus C3501/W4501 — Biochemistry: Structure and Metabolism Fall 2010 Dr. Liang Tong, 701 Fairchild Bldg, [email protected], 854-5203 Dr. Brent Stockwell, 614 Fairchild Bldg, [email protected], 854-2948 Class room: 301 Pupin Class time: Tuesday and Thursday 2:40-3:55 pm Recitations: TBA Course Description and Prerequisites In this course, we will cover subject matter in biochemistry, organic chemistry and structural biology. We will discuss the structure and function of both proteins and small molecules in biological systems. Proteins are the primary class of biological macromolecules and serve to carry out most cellular functions. Small organic molecules function in energy production and creating building blocks for the components of cells and can also be used to perturb the functions of proteins directly. The first half of the course will cover protein structure and enzyme kinetics. The second half of the course will explore how small molecules are used endogenously by living systems in metabolic and...
