This text will be provided by the instructor. Prerequisites: For Chem 547: Chem 545 is required. For Chem 647: Chem 645 is recommended. Purpose: A) Develop the students’ understanding of biological processes from the chemical perspective. B) Develop the students’ ability to find and apply relevant biochemical knowledge. C) Develop the students’ ability to critique biochemical information. Description: This course is the second semester of the Chemistry department’s biochemistry series. The series broadly covers biochemistry or the study of the chemical processes that comprise life. This includes the following five primary areas: 1) Molecular Biology – study of the molecules of life. 2) Enzymology – study of the chemical nature and biological activity of enzymes. 3) Metabolism – set of chemical reactions that maintain life. 4) Regulation – management of the chemical processes of life. 5) Evolution – development of the chemical processes of life through repeated cycles of variation, reproduction, and selection. This course uses the textbook, lectures, and assigned readings as primary sources of information. In addition, students are expected to have a working knowledge of the material covered in CHEM 545/645. Biochemistry II picks up where CHEM 545/645 leaves off and will cover: 1) Continuation of Carbohydrate metabolism and regulation 2) Lipid and Amino Acid metabolism 3) Biosignaling and Metabolic regulation 4) Nucleic Acids and their metabolism 5) Protein metabolism 6) Gene regulation and Biochemical aspects of evolution. Finally, the course uses the Paul-Elder model of critical thinking as a basis for developing students’ skills to critically analyze, evaluate, and synthesize biochemical information.
