BIOL111 KS - Fundamentals of Biochemistry

The goals of the course are to introduce students to key concepts in biochemistry and then apply them to eukaryotic systems with an emphasis on humans. This course is for students planning to pursue careers in health sciences who are not majoring in molecular biology, biochemistry, or chemistry. The learning goals align with the core concepts outlined by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (https://www.asbmb.org/education/core-concept-teaching-strategies/foundational-concepts); the four major areas are structure and function, energy and metabolism, information storage and transfer, and scientific skills, along with the underlying concepts of homeostasis and evolution. Students may not earn credit for both BIOL 177 KS /CHEM 177 KS  and BIOL111 KS.

Prerequisites: BIOL 043L KS , CHEM 014L KS CHEM 015L KS   or BIOL 042L KS /CHEM 042L KS  in place of BIOL 043L KS  and CHEM 015L KS CHEM 116L KS
