CHEM 323 - Foundations of Biochemistry (3)

Designed to approach the fundamentals of biochemistry from a chemical perspective, this course examines the structure and function of biological molecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. It introduces the principles of molecular recognition, enzyme catalysis, enzyme kinetics, and metabolism and develops an understanding of biological equilibria, redox, and energy transduction through the discussion of core metabolic pathways and oxidative phosphorylation. Prerequisites: CHEM 232, 233. Fall.
