  Enrollment limited to 29 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: In Person  
  Prerequisite: C- or better in Chemistry 212, Biology 183 and Math 131
  To maintain its life, a living organism depends on thousands of discrete chemical reactions to take place. In this lecture and laboratory course the nature of these chemical reactions will be surveyed and explored. Since nearly all of these reactions are catalyzed using organic and inorganic molecules, an emphasis will be placed on using mechanistic organic and inorganic chemistry to explain how this chemistry occurs. The course will begin with a survey of the bonding and structures of the major biochemical macromolecules: proteins, DNA, RNA, carbohydrates and lipids. It will then explore how living organisms use small molecules to synthesize these larger molecules, followed by how these larger molecules are recycled when they are no longer needed. The course will also explore the chemical events associated with photosynthesis and the electron transport chain. The laboratory part of the course will give students experience in protein isolation and purification, the measurement of enzyme kinetics using instrumental methods of analysis, and the characterization of human DNA using the polymerase chain reaction.
