PHSC 1213 - Biomolecular Chemistry (3)

This course is designed to cover integrated concepts of human biochemistry as it relates to the synthesis, structure and function of key biomolecules (nucleic acids, amino acids, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates), membranes, cells, signal transduction processes, and metabolic pathways in physiologic systems. Special emphasis will be placed on the comprehension of key biomolecules, cellular organelles or pathways that can be targeted or manipulated for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of human disease. Laboratory exercises for this course will be incorporated into the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Laboratory Course when necessary. Methods of instruction include lectures, group discussions, and independent study.
