BIOMO301

Advanced Biochemistry

This paper builds on the principles of biochemistry introduced in BIOMO201 to examine molecular mechanisms underlying cellular communication and trafficking of proteins between organelles, cellular stress responses, cell death, and the degradation of biomolecules. Students will also examine the molecular basis of human diseases such as Diabetes and how protein structures are determined, the process of nucleotide metabolism and transcription and features of molecular motors (such as the ATP synthase). Students will also be required to critically evaluate and make oral presentations from primary research findings in biochemistry and molecular cell biology as part of the directed study section of this paper.
