BCEM 341 - Biochemistry of Life Processes - Winter 2024

Emphasis is placed on describing the chemistry of biochemical molecules including proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Cell structure and life processes are introduced by examining the chemistry of the biomolecules involved. Basic concepts of metabolism are introduced, focusing on the breakdown of carbohydrates for energy. The laboratory component reinforces learning of the lecture material, while teaching technical skills and the analysis and interpretation of experiments involving biochemical molecules.
