Welcome - Nucleic Acid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology BIOC 3400   Nucleic Acid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course focuses on the relationship of structure to function in RNA and DNA. Methods for studying the primary, secondary, and tertiary structures of nucleic acids are explored in lectures and in the laboratory. Topics covered include enzymic mechanisms for biosynthesis, rearrangement, degradation, and repair of nucleic acid molecules, and processes of replication, transcription, and translation. Nucleic acid biochemistry is emphasized as a basis for understanding storage and transfer of biological information. COORDINATOR: J. Archibald
