*Taught Online for Summer 2021* This course is an introductory biochemistry course, intended to provide basic knowledge of chemical processes underlying cellular metabolism. It examines in plants and animals the chemical nature of cellular components, enzyme kinetics, mechanism of enzyme activity, energy interconversions, and biosynthetic reactions, including template-dependent processes and some aspects of metabolic control mechanisms. The course also includes a laboratory. The aim of the laboratory exercises is to give students an understanding of and appreciation for laboratory research procedures in biochemistry. This course fulfills the biochemistry requirement for the biological sciences concentration.
A course in cell biology and organic chemistry, with strong performance in both is required -- this is one of the most rigorous courses in the College.
Students will choose to attend one lab day.
