BIOL 111 -Fundamentals of Biochemistry


Description: The goals of the course are to introduce students to key concepts in biochemistry and then apply them to eukaryotic systems with an emphasis on humans. This course is for students planning to pursue careers in health sciences who are not majoring in molecular biology, biochemistry, or chemistry. The learning goals align with the core concepts outlined by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (https://www.asbmb.org/education/core-concept-teaching-strategies/foundationalconcepts); the four major areas are structure and function, energy and metabolism, information storage and transfer, and scientific skills, along with the underlying concepts of homeostasis and evolution.
