Course content
Chemical biology is a way of understanding biology as a fusion of organic, inorganic, physical, and analytical chemistry. A broad range of disciplines from biochemistry to chemical biology will be discussed focusing on the molecular biology as a tool, experimental techniques as well.
Purpose of class
Understanding about biology with chemistry
Goals and objectives
  1. Explain definition, classification and structure of bilogical organism
  2. Explain replication and expression of gene in bilogical organism
  3. Propose the way of manipulation for gene and protein
  4. Explain signal trasduction and energy production in bilogical organism
