(3 cr) Biochemical structure and function with initial emphasis placed on the properties of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins and the relationship between structure and function. This is followed by an introduction to enzymes and the mechanisms of enzyme action. A discussion of the structure and function of biological membranes is then presented. Attention is then given to the nucleic acids and includes the genetic role, structure, and replication of DNA and the role of RNA in protein synthesis. Prerequisites: CHEM 315 and BIOL 305.
