Unformatted text preview: CH369: Fundamentals of Biochemistry Fall 2011 Unique #51780: 3:30 ­5:00 pm in WEL 2.224 X. Tentative Course Schedule: All readings refer to chapters in the Pratt & Cornely text. Students are STRONGLY encouraged to read the relevant pages BEFORE the scheduled lecture to be of highest benefit. Lecture is the best time to ask questions and clarify key points in order to build your understanding – but you can’t build unless you first look at the blueprint! Lecture topics may need to be adjusted from time to time – to best serve the needs of the students. Because of this possibility, exam material may also be altered – but the exam dates will remain fixed. Any changes will be announced in Blackboard at the earliest possible time. Lecture notes will be posted in Blackboard AFTER class.
