CHEM 221 - Biochemistry For Science Majors

The course is designed to provide an introduction to the principles, concepts and terminology of biochemistry, with an emphasis on the structure and function of biomolecules, the role of intermediary metabolism in energy production and common biochemical laboratory techniques. Topics include the chemistry and properties of three groups of biological macromolecules (proteins, carbohydrates and lipids) and their building blocks, protein structure and function, enzyme catalysis, and the details of the central metabolic pathways (glycolysis, glycogenolysis, the citric acid cycle, electron transport, and oxidative phosphorylation) including their regulation and integration. Throughout the course the organizing principles of biochemistry and the distinctive characteristics of the living state will be emphasized. The laboratory exposes the students to a variety of biochemical techniques and how they are used to evaluate biomolecules and biochemical systems. These techniques include spectrophotometry, various types of chromatography, enzyme assays, protein purification and others. Class Notes: This class will be offered in an online blended format. Students are required to be online and interacting with their instructor on 9/14/21, 9/30/21, 10/12/21, 10/26/21, 11/9/21, 11/23/21, 12/9/21 and 12/16/21 and to work online independently each week for the amount of TBA time shown in addition to completing assigned homework. No on-campus meetings will be held.
