BIOL4043Cellular Metabolism3 ch (3C/S)

Life is a chemical phenomenon. Its maintenance requires the input of energy, acquisition of electrons and essential elements from the environment, and metabolic schemes to synthesize the biological molecules required for cellular viability and replication. This course examines the unifying biochemical concepts underlying diverse metabolic strategies utilized by prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

Prerequisites: BIOL 2023, BIOL 2063, CHEM 2401 or CHEM 2421. Strongly recommended: BIOL 3031, BIOL 3043, BIOL 3073, BIOL 3261.
