CHEM 331 - Biological Chemistry

Biological chemistry is a study of the chemistry of life. It is a multi-disciplinary science that employs physical, biological, and chemical principles to understand the biochemical unity displayed by living systems at the molecular level. The structure-function relationship of biomolecules such as proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates is examined, as is the operation of enzymes, hormones, vitamins, poisons, and drugs. Emphasis is placed on the abnormal (diseased) state, bioenergetics, genetics, and the interrelationship of biomolecules in nutrition.
