Welcome to Biochemistry!
Biochemistry explores the structure and role of essential biological molecules focusing on carbohydrate, lipid, nucleic acid and protein chemistry. Biochemistry is a survey course designed to review general principles of chemistry and biochemistry while relating them back to the physiological conditions of an organism, understanding the chemical and molecular events involved in biological processes. Topics designed in this course include the structure and function of biomolecules, relationship of biochemistry to the physiology of an organism, relationship of bioenergetics to the physiological state of an organism, description of the chemistry underlying metabolic reactions, regulation of metabolic pathways, nutrition and metabolism, enzyme structure and catalysis, DNA, RNA and protein synthesis, and the role of DNA in inheritance. This course provides the linkage between the inanimate world of chemistry and the living world of biology.
