BIOC 304
Biochemistry II, part 2

Biochemistry II is a continuation of Biochemistry I. The two courses provide a comprehensive overview of biochemistry at the graduate level. The spring course will cover metabolism and biosynthesis of biological macromolecules, such as glycogen, fatty acid, amino acid and nucleotide.

This is the second part of a two-part course. The completion of the first part (BIOC 303) is required before taking the second part. Registration is required separately for each part of the course.
