Gain an understanding of the molecules that drive living organisms In this course we will study life at the atomic and molecular level. We will study the four classes of biomolecules that are the building blocks of living organisms – proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. We will study how bioenergy is stored in and extracted from food sources. Finally, we will study how inheritable genetic information is stored in the form of DNA and orchestrates the functions of cells through the processes of transcription and translation. The course is appropriate for students who have not taken a biochemistry course and those that have and want to refresh their knowledge in the area. A rudimentary understanding of biology and chemistry is recommended.
