One semester introduction to the chemistry of living systems. Includes laboratory. Emphasis will be placed on the structure and function of major biochemical molecules, including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. An overview of metabolism, including anabolic and catabolic processes, will be given. Enzymatic catalysis, regulation of metabolism and transmission and expression of genetic information will be included. A major focus will be the relationship between biochemical processes and diagnosing and treating human disease. Prerequisites: CHEM 340 - Organic Chemistry Survey or CHEM 350 - Principles of Organic Chemistry I and CHEM 351 - Principles of Organic Chemistry II. Grade only. Offered annually.
