Chemistry of Biological Systems II (1015MSC)

This course builds on material presented in Chemistry of Biological Systems I, extending the study of general chemistry, but also introducing organic and biological chemistry, which underpins all biochemical processes and the molecular basis of life. The knowledge obtained will provide a solid foundation for subsequent chemistry and biochemistry courses. The course has an emphasis on practical laboratory skills. This, with the other components of the course, will allow students to develop problem solving skills relevant to the scientific method, competency in laboratory methods, and an ability to interpret laboratory results. The course covers the following topics: introductory organic chemistry, an overview of carbohydrate, lipid, nucleic acid, amino acid and protein chemistry, then chemistry of food, exercise & medicine, and fundamentals of bioenergetics. Pre-Requisite: 1001MSC Chemistry of Biological Systems I or 1023SCG Chemistry 1 Assumed Knowledge: Maths B and One of Biology, Chemistry or Physics (4SA)
