S. B. Qian, A. Thalacker-Mercer.

Presents the principles of biochemistry within the context of human health and disease. Teaches the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins from a perspective that emphasizes their role in supporting the structure and physiological functions of the major organs of the body. Incorporates the concepts of enzyme catalysis, enzyme regulation, hormone action, and bioenergetics within this framework. Covers he fundamental concepts of eukaryotic DNA structure, function, and gene expression with reference to their importance in regulating metabolism.

Outcome 1: Predict the impact of gene regulation and protein regulation on metabolism and physiology at the cell, system and whole body level.

Outcome 2: Predict the impact of vitamins and minerals on metabolism and physiology at the cell, system and whole body level.

Outcome 3: Integrate knowledge of the interactions of gene regulation, protein regulation and nutrient availability on homeostasis.
