120.600.02 BIOCHEMISTRY -- AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE I
Explores the structures of the principal cellular macromolecules and their roles in cellular processes. Emphasizes the forces that underlie specific recognition processes. Considers the mechanisms of enzyme action and biochemistry of nucleic acids.
Students who complete this course will be able to describe the construction of the principal cellular macromolecules, and to analyze the forces that determine the three-dimensional structure of these molecules in aqueous solution. They will be able to relate the structures of macromolecules to their functions, and to identify the methods used to study these questions in detail.
