Introduction to Biomolecules


The goal of this course is to introduce students to the preparation, characterization, structure-function relationship, and chemistry of proteins, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids. The course emphasizes understanding the chemical and physical properties of the respective building blocks and their noncovalent interactions as the foundation for macromolecular properties and function. Students will apply fundamental energetic and mechanistic principles (from general and organic chemistry) and develop chemical reasoning skills that enable scientific problem-solving towards the understanding of chemical phenomena in biological systems.
