Synopsis

The course is designed to study the physical and biochemical characteristics of biomolecules including nucleic acids,  proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. Important pathways for biosynthesis and degradation of nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids will be discussed. Production of energy from carbohydrate and lipids and the related metabolisms will also be discussed. Besides that, the principle of cellular signaling in living organisms also will be described in this course.

 

Course Outcomes

1. Describe the structure and properties of biomolecules
