BIO 20600 Introduction to Biochemistry

(3 cr.) Lecture-Lab: 3-0
Offered: V
Biochemistry will first provide a brief outline of the functional groups, nomenclature, and reactions of organic chemistry, then examine the fundamentals of biochemistry, including structure and reactivity of proteins and nucleic acids, and the basic processes of metabolism. Clinical analysis of important bio-molecules and clinical tests of body processes and molecular diseases will be investigated. The course is designed to satisfy the degree requirements in nursing (BSN), entry into graduate level study of medicine (PA) or an allied health field. It will also serve as a preparatory course for higher level organic and biochemistry courses that are required for pre-medical, pre-dental, or chemistry major programs. Prerequisite:  CHE 10101  and CHE 10201   (Science credit)
