Wed 3:00-4:00 PM (W241)
In this course, we will cover in one semester the range of topics typically included in the field of biochemistry.
3700 is appropriate for most pre-health professionals, and other pre-professionals who need a complete coverage of biochemistry in less
This course contrasts with the chemistry 5700/5710 series, where the same topics are covered in more depth over two semesters.
The overall goal of Chem 3700 is to provide students with the big picture of all of the topics typically covered in biochemistry.
students will be given more detailed views of the major classes of biological macromolecules, the metabolic pathways used in energy
and precursor production, and the information pathways.
Prerequisites for the course include chemistry 2300 or 2320 or equivalent.
The text used in the class is
edition, 2010, by Pratt and Cornely, ISBN 9780470504772.
edition of this book or other current biochemistry books should also work fine, but you will need to figure out which sections to read.
Also used in the class will be
ed., by D. E. Nicholson, Sigma-Aldrich (M3782).
