Principles of Biochemistry

Principles of Biochemistry integrates an introduction to the structure of macromolecules and a biochemical approach to cellular function. Topics addressing protein function will include enzyme kinetics, the characterization of major metabolic pathways and their interconnection into tightly regulated networks, and the manipulation of enzymes and pathways with mutations or drugs. An exploration of simple cells (red blood cells) to more complex tissues (muscle and liver) will be used as a framework to discuss the progression in metabolic complexity. Learners will also develop problem solving and analytical skills that are more generally applicable to the life sciences.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

about studying biochem in one review

The presentation isn't the snazziest, in most cases, but I learned a great deal and highly recommend it for anyone serious about studying biochem.

anyone serious about in one review

deal and highly in one review

explanations are clear in one review

If you just starting to study biochemistry you would have to work a lot in this course, but lectures are just amazing, explanations are clear.

swath of material in one review

Excellent course, but grueling - it's long, it covers a huge swath of material, and it's not easy for someone, like me, with a limited background in chemistry.
