Build Your Knowledge of Biochemistry Further with Biochemistry II.
Learn about the important building blocks of life including:
- Amino acids
- hormones, RNA and DNA.
This course focuses on biochemical molecules.
Biochemistry has its roots in medicine, nutrition, agriculture, and natural products chemistry. It covers many other areas as well, but today it is mostly is concerned with the chemistry of molecules found in and associated with living systems, especially the chemistry of these molecules.
Biochemists are always trying to break processes down in order to understand how these work, how molecules are created or destroyed and how they relate and affect each other. With the advent of all the modern equipment and computer systems many biochemists also study intact systems and how each system functions and the other structures or processes that may be affected.
Course prerequisites: Biochemistry I (Plant) BSC102 or Biochemistry I (Animal) BSC103 ;or similar, before attempting this module.
