Biological Chemistry II (2) A continuation of BCHEM 502. Emphasis on interrelations of metabolic pathways, catabolic end products, and regulation.
BCHEM 505 Biological Chemistry II (2)
Biological Chemistry II is a continuation of Biological Chemistry I. Metabolic pathways for lipids, amino acids, and carbohydrates are discussed with emphasis placed on regulation and integration with material covered in Biological Chemistry I. The objective is to provide students with the knowledge needed to understand the ramifications that change in one pathway may induce in another. This course is required of all graduate students in the biochemistry and molecular biology program. Because it is a required basic course, it is offered in the spring semester each year and it is taken by all first year students in the biochemistry program. Two exams will be given, a mid-term and a final.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
