CHEM 590: General Biochemistry I
Protein chemistry, enzymology, and nucleic acid chemistry.
Susan Evans, Ph.D., Course Instructor
CHEM 591: General Biochemistry II
This course covers key topics in metabolism. The metabolic pathways used for energy production and for the synthesis and degradation of the building blocks of living organisms are studied. Special emphasis is directed toward the mechanism of energy production in eukaryotic cells. Integration and regulation of carbohydrate, lipid, amino acid and nucleic acid metabolism are emphasized. The metabolic basis of selected inherited diseases is examined. Students should have some background in biochemistry (prerequisite: Chem 590).
