1 BS161, Fall 2010: Study Guide for Exam 1 If I talked about it in lecture it is fair game. Generally, if it’s in the chapter but I didn’t talk about it in class, it won’t be covered on the exam (unless specified otherwise in class). If I SPECIFICALLY TOLD YOU TO KNOW some topic/concept/detail in a lecture—know it. If I SPECIFICALLY TOLD YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW some topic/concept/detail in a lecture— don’t study it. General Biological info: What is the central dogma? What are the processes between each step? What does the central dogma actually describing? How are those processes related to the macromolecules we discussed in chapter 5? Chapters 2, 3 & 4 Know only those sections and material that I specifically assigned and talked about (Did you take good notes?) Be able to draw each of the functional groups in Ch 4 and know their properties (summarized nicely in Fig. 4.9. Isomers of organic molecules frequently have identical chemical properties. Why do they have significantly different biological properties (i.e. Why are isomers important in biological systems?)? Chapter 5: Macromolecules What are condensation, dehydration and hydrolysis reactions? Could you recognize them if shown illustrations? Could you draw them? Can you list some examples that we saw in class? Know the properties and structures of the 4 types of macromolecules well enough to be able to recognize them . Be familiar with the suffixes and prefixes associated with the various macromolecules (and functional groups, for that matter) that were mentioned in class. Some of the macromolecule classes had different types.
