CHEM 309. Biochemistry (with lab). 1 or 3 Hours.
A rigorous introduction to modern biochemistry with an emphasis on the molecular
basis of cellular structure and biological function. A thorough treatment of physicochemical properties of informational macromolecules is employed to provide a sound basis for the study of bioenergetics and metabolic organization. The lab exercises provide experience in protien chemistry and in chromatographic and electrophoretic separation, and emphasizes the basic principles of biochemistry.
Prerequisite: CHEM 204 with a minimum grade of D.
