The structure and function of biologically important macromolecules.

The general catalytic and regulatory mechanisms of enzymes.

The energetics, organization, and regulation of metabolic pathways.

The mechanisms underlying DNA replication, DNA repair, transcription and its regulation, and translation (protein synthesis).

The techniques used to study proteins, membranes, and nucleic acids.

Outcome 2: Think analytically and use quantitative reasoning to solve biochemical problems.

Outcome 3: Formulate conclusions based on the analysis of biochemical experimental results.

Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: BIOMG 3300, BIOMG 3310-BIOMG 3320, BIOMG 3330, BIOMG 3350, NS 3200. Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

Prerequisites
