Biochemistry

College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

Biochemistry (CHEM304) - Prerequisites

High School Diploma or equivalent, General Chemistry 1 or equivalent and Organic Chemistry 1 or equivalent, CHEM 150 (replaces both General and Organic Chemistry).

Biochemistry (CHEM304) - Course Description

Biochemistry requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated biochemistry classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)


Biochemistry (CHEM304) course examines the structure and function of the following biological macromolecules in the context of cellular integrity, dynamics and metabolism: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. The weekend biochemistry topics include enzymology, bioenergetics, catabolism, anabolism, regulation of gene expression, biotechnology, hormone regulation of mammalian metabolism and the pre-biotic evolution of life on earth.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.

Nursing students should learn more about the Chemistry for Health Professions class also offered by ISP. The Chemistry for Health Professions introduces pre-nursing students to the fundamental concepts of organic chemistry and biochemistry, and meets the requirement for pre-nursing curriculums.
