Biochemical systems of living organisms are examined in terms of basic chemical concepts. Prerequisite: LIFE 1000 or 1010, and CHEM 2300 or 2340. (No credit if credit earned in MOLB 4600). MOLB 3610/ CHEM 3610 is a 4 credit hour lecture course intended for students interested in biology, chemistry, pharmacy, physiology, or nutrition (but normally not for molecular biology and microbiology majors, who are encouraged to take MOLB4600 + MOLB4610). The course covers basics principles of biochemistry including structure and function of major biomolecules, metabolism and flow of genetic information. This course is intensive and challenging.
