BIOL 472 - Biochemistry II & Lab

Credit Hours: 4
Prerequisites: BIOL/CHEM 470
This course will expand on concepts covered in BIOL 470: Biochemistry I & Lab. This course will analyze and describe the structure of biologically relevant molecules. These molecules will be studied in the context of several metabolic processes including but not limited to synthesis and degradation of organic polymers, genetic mechanisms, protein synthesis, and energy utilization. Disease states will be analyzed in the context of altered metabolic pathway. Modern techniques in biochemical research also are introduced and explored in laboratory exercises.
This course is cross-listed with CHEM 472
