BIOMG 3300 - Principles of Biochemistry, Individualized Instruction

Fall, spring. 4 credits. Biological Sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

Forbidden Overlap: Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: BIOMG 3300, BIOMG 3310 -BIOMG 3320 , BIOMG 3330 , BIOMG 3350 , NS 3200 .
Prerequisite: one majors-level biology course and one year general chemistry and CHEM 1570  or CHEM 3570 -CHEM 3580  (CHEM 3580  may be taken concurrently) or equivalent, or permission of instructor. Recommended corequisite: BIOMG 3340 .

J. Blankenship, P. Hinkle, Y. Mao, staff.

Fourteen units that cover protein structure and function, enzymes, basic metabolic pathways, DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and an introduction to recombinant DNA techniques. No formal lectures, auto-tutorial format.

Outcome 1: After taking BIOMG 3300, students should be able to:
-Discuss and describe in writing: 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.
-Think analytically and use quantitative reasoning to solve biochemical problems.
-Formulate conclusions based on the analysis of biochemical experimental results.
