BIOMG 3300 - Principles of Biochemistry, Individualized Instruction

Fall, Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: BIOMG 3300, BIOMG 3310  and BIOMG 3320 , BIOMG 3330 , BIOMG 3350 , NS 3200 .
Prerequisite: one majors-level biology course and one year general chemistry and any of the following organic chemistry courses: CHEM 1570 , or CHEM 3530 , or CHEM 3570 , or CHEM 3590 , or equivalent, or permission of instructor. Recommended corequisite: BIOMG 3340 . Biological Sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

J. Blankenship, Staff.

Thirteen 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.

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

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

Outcome 4: Students should recognize that the advancement of knowledge is facilitated by collaboration between individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and beliefs.
