CONTENT

Emphasis is placed on the energy production and utilisation in biochemical systems so that an understanding of dynamics and energetics of biochemical systems can be achieved. Topics will also include control mechanisms in metabolism.

OBJECTIVE

AIMS
- Classroom sessions of this module aims to teach fundamental concepts in biochemistry including topics on Bioenergetic Principles, Carbohydrate Metabolism, TCA cycle, Electron Transport Chain, Amino Acid Metabolism, Lipid Metabolism, Biosynthetic Reactions and Integration and Function of Metabolism.
- As a co-requisite the classrooms sessions, recitation sessions of this module (BIO322R) aims to review and complement the major in-class covered concepts weekly.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES
After completing the in-class teaching and laboratory activities associated with this module you should be able to: (Look Learning Outcomes items)

Individual and key skills 10-11

LEARNING OUTCOME

Identify the fundamental concepts of in energy production and its utilization in biochemical systems.
Achieve an understanding of dynamics and energetics of biochemical systems.
Describe the structure and biological function of the intermediates in carbohydrate metabolism, TCA cycle and electron transport chain.
Describe the basic aspects of protein, membrane and lipid metabolism.
Describe the basic aspects integration and regulation of the carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism.
Develop a general understanding to approach essential facts and theories of energy production and its utilization in biochemical systems.
Identify the key features of carbohydrates, protein and lipid metabolism and differentiate these features in frame of dynamics and energetic of biochemical systems.
Evaluate the main aspects of the biochemistry with reference to the textbook. (Lehninger. Principles of Biochemistry, Fifth Edition, D. Nelson and M. Cox, Freeman, 2009)
Express basic concepts on biochemical energy production effectively by written means in home works, quizzes, examinations.
With some guidance, identify the covered concepts in the text book and study autonomously.
With some guidance, collect specific information about biochemically important molecules from the text book.
