COURSE SYLLABUS

PEN Code: BIO 024


PEN Subject Title: BIOCHEMISTRY
Credits: 3 units lecture, 2 units laboratory
Prerequisite/s: none

A. Subject Description:
The course deals with the molecular hierarchy of the living cells. It covers the study of the
biomolecules, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids in relation to their structure
and functions to the living system, the generation and storage of metabolic energy,
biosynthesis of biomolecules and the transmission and expression of genetic energy
information. It also discusses the importance and correlation of biomolecules to health and
diseases.

B. Objectives:
At the end of the course, the student must be able to:

1. Recognize the structure of the different biomolecules, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids


and nucleic acids.
2. Understand basic concepts and principles in the isolation of biomolecules.
3. Apply the methods and techniques in the isolation, characterization and analysis of the
different biomolecules.
4. Correlate structure with the biological function of the biomolecules.
5. Understand the importance of transmission and expression of genetic information.
6. Describe the pathways that lead to the generation and storage of the metabolic fuel.
7. Explain the derangements in metabolic disorders in relation to health and disease.
8. Apply principles of biochemistry to nursing and other related fields.
