BC367 Learning Goals

  1. To learn the fundamental chemistry and biochemistry of major classes of biomolecules, including amino acids and proteins, sugars and polysaccharides, nucleotides and nucleic acids, and lipids.
  2. To understand how chemical reactivity, thermodynamics, and kinetics are responsible for life.
  3. To sharpen problem-solving skills of both a qualitative and quantitative nature and to solve problems that involve the integration and synthesis of new knowledge.
  4. To enhance written and oral communication skills and build confidence in oral expression in a group setting.
