OSAKA UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY - BIOLOGY COMBINED MAJOR PROGRAM

Biochemistry 2

Outline

This class is the continuation of Biochemistry 1. Students will learn how biochemical processes are catalyzed by enzymes, explore the themes of metabolism of biomolecules and understand the mechanism and control of metabolic processes. The knowledge from Biochemistry 1 is required in order to thrive in this course.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  1. understand how enzymes work
  2. be able to solve the enzyme kinetics calculations
  3. have a working understanding of the flow of matter, energy and information in living systems
  4. analyze and solve problems with the working concepts of metabolism
