Biochemistry- BIOL/CHEM 335 Fall 2010 Instructors: Larry Ferren, Ph.D. Gregory J. Long, Ph.D. Office: Reed 318 Reed 130 Telephone: 939-5251 939-5065 Email: [email protected] [email protected] Texts: Principles of Biochemistry, 5th Edition. Nelson and Cox. Freeman Publishers. Lecture Notes for Biol/Chem 335, Chapters 1-11- available on-line via Blackboard Course Schedule: Lecture: 2:00-2:50 MWF in Reed 242. Lab: Section 01 - 10:30 am -1:20 pm Tuesday in Reed 310 Section 02 - 10:30 am -1:20 pm Thursday in Reed 310 Section 03 – 6:30 pm – 9:20 pm Thursday in Reed 310 Course Objectives: Scope of Course: Students in this course will study central biochemical principles which demonstrate the relationship of structure to function in bioenergetics, regulation and other cellular activities. Special emphasis is placed upon the physical, chemical, and biological context in which biomolecules and metabolic pathways function. Animal, plant, and microbial systems are given balanced treatment and are often covered together to highlight similarities and distinctions. Important experimental techniques that underlie advances in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology are explained in the context of concepts and principles. Many major concepts and methods are also incorporated into the laboratory experience. Additional coverage of proteins, enzyme structure and function, DNA, and RNA is included. Prerequisites: BIOL 125 or 126, CHEM 104, or consent of instructor. Objectives : 1) To generally survey the structures of biologically important compounds in cells. 2) To understand various protein structures and their biological function. 3) To understand the chemistry of water and buffering systems. 4) To understand how living organisms derive energy from compounds or light and how that energy is stored. 5) To understand the principle reactions in carbohydrate, lipid, and nitrogen metabolism. 6) To understand nucleic acid and gene structure, concepts of gene expression, and genetic engineering.
