Biochemistry: DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis
CHEM XL 153B
This course is a continuation of the biochemistry series and is geared towards pre-medical and pre-health students. It covers metabolism, DNA and RNA properties, transcription, and protein synthesis and processing.
What you can learn.
- Understand classical topics of nucleotide metabolism and nucleic acid structure
- Understand DNA replication and repair, transcription, and translation
- Comprehend protein synthesis and processing
- Understand modern topics of epigenetics and transcriptional and translational regulation
- Recognize non-coding RNAs
About this course:This course covers nucleotide metabolism, DNA replication and repair, transcription machinery, regulation of transcription, RNA structure and processing, and protein synthesis and processing. Transferable for UC credit.
