•Course Purpose
We will continue to learn the biochemical basis of living organisms.

The first part covers the structures and functions of the essential macromolecules, sugar and lipids, in biological systems. The 2nd part covers biochemical principles of cellular physiology focusing on how the cells communicate with outside as well as within its own inside. The goal is to understand how the structure and properties of biochemical molecules work to perform necessary functions to sustain life.
