     After consultation with a faculty member doing biochemical research, a research problem is undertaken under the guidance of that faculty member. Prerequisites: Permission of the faculty member. 1-3 credits.

302-21100 Essentials of Biochemistry   NS LA

     The structure of carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins; the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids, and sugars; and the structure and function of biological membranes. Prerequisites: 304-11100 and 304-11200. Not open to students who have completed 302-35300. 3 credits. (F,Y)

302-35300 Biochemistry I   NS LA

     Introduction to biochemistry, including consideration of protein, enzyme, carbohydrate, and lipid structure and function, and metabolism of sugars, fatty acids, and amino acids. Mechanisms of reactions and control of pathways are stressed. Three hours of lecture per week. Prerequisites: 304-22200. 3 credits. (F,Y)

302-35400 Biochemistry II   NS LA

     Continuation of Biochemistry I. Photosynthesis, biosynthesis of lipids, hormones, amino acids, and nucleotides are considered, followed by a study of the storage, transmission, expression, and control of genetic information. Gene expression in viruses, bacteria, and eukaryotic cells is covered, along with an introduction to genetic engineering techniques, immunoglobulins, and motility. Three hours of lecture per week. Prerequisites: 302-35300. 3 credits. (S,Y)

302-42500 Biochemistry Laboratory   NS LA

     Selected experiments, including isolation and purification of an enzyme, proof of its purity, and its mechanism of action. Emphasis is placed on techniques and methods currently used in biochemical research. Prerequisites: 302-35400, prior or concurrent. 3 credits. (F,Y)

302-48100 Current Topics in Biochemistry   NS LA

     Discussion of major research areas of current interest. Topics change from year to year, but may include genetic engineering and cloning techniques, mechanisms of carcinogenesis, toxicology, immunology, and gerontology. Prerequisites: 302-35300. 3 credits. (S,Y)

302-49700, 302-49800 Honors Research in Biochemistry   NS LA

     After consultation with a selected honors committee from biology and chemistry faculty, a research project is undertaken under the guidance of a faculty member. An honors thesis and an oral defense of the thesis are required. Prerequisites: Admission to honors program; 3 credits of research at level 3 or above. 3 or 4 credits.
