SCIĀ 367. Biochemistry. 3 Credit Hours.

This course involves the study of chemical processes that are continually occurring within a living organism. The structures and functions of critical chemical components of all cells will be covered as well. In addition, critical processes such as metabolism, generation of energy and the biosynthesis of major biomolecules (proteins, DNA, lipids, carbohydrates) and photosynthesis will be analyzed in-depth. The final portion of the course will examine biochemical basis of disease, and how biological systems deal with toxins.
