BIOCH 280 - ADVANCED TOPICS IN BIOCHEMISTRY

[1-4 Credits]
One to four hours of lecture and discussion per week. The topics will be arranged by consultation with faculty members expert in the areas. The topics will add breadth and depth to the fundamentals taught in other courses and will be chosen on the basis of their timeliness and student and faculty interest. Biochemistry of the cell cycle, comparative biochemistry, enzymology, intermediary metabolism, vitamins and nutrition, mass spectrometry, and bioenergetics are representative topics. A given topic will recur on a cycle of two to three years. The student’s transcript will indicate, in addition to the course title, the particular topic covered during the given semester. This procedure will serve to clarify the repeat appearance of Biochemistry 280 and 281 on the student’s transcript.
