|CHEM 426 - BIOCHEMISTRY I LECTURE AND LAB|
This course offers a comprehensive introduction to basic modern biochemistry. The lecture course will introduce students to the biochemical principles of protein and nucleic acids (structure and function of protein and nucleic acids), enzymes (enzyme kinetics and mechanisms), carbohydrates, lipids and biological membranes. The basic biochemical topics discussed in this course will be expanded further and discussed in depth during Biochemistry II (CHEM 446) course. The lab course will introduce students to basic biochemical laboratory techniques such as computing techniques in biochemical research, separation and identification of amino acids, structural analysis of peptides, protein purification including column chromatography, purification of lipids, carbohydrate analysis, DNA and protein analysis. This course is required for Biochemistry majors and recommended for Chemistry and Biology majors. Lab Fee.
