The Instructor reserves the right to change this syllabus when necessary to improve pedagogy and meet learning objectives. Spring 2011 Syllabus Chem 445 Survey of Biochemistry Instructor: Prof. Hunter Moseley Email: (best method of contact) Office: CB322 Lab: CB309 (where he will be 95% of the time) Phone: 502-852-3168 (office) 502-852-7598 (lab) Office Hours: 9:00am – 11:00am Wednesdays in CB309 Lectures: 9:30am-10:45am Tuesdays and Thursdays in CBLL16 Text: 1) Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry , 5 th edition, Nelson and Cox 2) The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking: Concepts and Tools by Dr. Richard Paul and Dr. Linda Elder. This text will be provided by the instructor. Prerequisites: Chem 342 is required. 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 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, 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. Responsibilities: You are responsible for all class lectures, discussions, assigned readings, and assignments. Homework assignments that are due must be turned in at the beginning of class. Missing, late, incomplete, or inadequately performed assignments (in-class or homework) will incur a 10 point deduction from your total. You are responsible for all announcements and material posted to the Blackboard class. Check the Blackboard class page daily. Any questions regarding graded material must be submitted in writing to the instructor no later than one week after the grade is given. Any questions submitted after this time period will not be considered. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. You will be asked to leave class. Make sure that your cell phone, pager, or other electronic device is not disruptive to class or you will be asked to leave. Students are responsible for bringing pencils and red ink pens for mastery quizzes.
