Semester 1

This module will broaden knowledge and understanding of atomic and molecular structure, enzyme function, energy and thermodynamics that can be applied to the Life Sciences.

Topics include:

  • molecular structure and biochemical properties (to include organisation and charge/polarity) of nucleotides, ┬álipids and phospholipids, carbohydrates and amino acids
  • protein structure (primary to quaternary)
  • biological enzymes and their importance in the catalysis of biochemical reactions
  • energy and thermodynamics relating to biochemical reactions
