Topics to be covered include the structure, nomenclature, properties and reactions of hydrocarbons, alcohol, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and the amines with significant emphasis on the biochemical context of these organic molecules. The structure and function of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids including the major catabolic and anabolic pathways of carbohydrate, lipid, and protein metabolism is also covered. Lab activities complement theoretical concepts. Group discussion, lecture, as well as laboratory exercises are included as methods of learning.
