Syllabus:

BIOCHEM 2502 uses the knowledge and understanding gained in the prerequisite Level I courses (see below) to provide students with an appreciation and an understanding of key biochemistry and molecular biology concepts. Consequently the topics covered include specialised proteins, enzyme specificity and regulation, DNA structure, synthesis and repair, RNA and protein synthesis, and some pathways utilised to control gene expression. The course combines lectures, tutorials that reinforce the lecture content, and practicals to complement the lecture content. This practical component draws from the MBS Practical series: Prac A, Prac B and Prac C.
