Prerequisite: BIOL 3510 or equivalent.
The Biochemistry course covers the structure and function of nucleic acids and proteins, as well as the thermodynamics and kinetics of their interactions with each other and with other biologically important molecules. It is expected that all students have taken an undergraduate course in Biochemistry, and you may find it useful to review chapters discussing the above-mentioned subjects in an undergraduate Biochemistry textbook. You will also need to have a basic working knowledge of kinetics and thermodynamics. (So, if you are not comfortable working with equilibrium constants, free energies, and rate constants, please review these topics in an undergraduate chemistry text.) There are no required texts for this class; readings from various texts will be made available to the class. Some professors may administer a pre-quiz at the start of their lectures to make sure you are adequately prepared for the material to be covered.
