CHEM 385 Biochemistry II

This course builds depth of biochemical understanding upon the foundation laid in CHEM 379.  Content includes selected topics in catabolic and anabolic metabolism, integration and regulation of metabolism, photosynthesis and biochemical genetics including gene regulation.  During the semester the students are asked to develop an independent, hypothesis driven, research/style proposal based on an area of biochemistry that they find particularly interesting.

Dr. Muth has been developing this course since the Spring of 2004.  His primary focus is to create an atmosphere for the study and discussion of topics from the primary literature.  To supplement these articles, he utilizes Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, 4th edition by Nelson and Cox as his text of choice.
