5.08 Biological Chemistry II

Class Info

More advanced treatment of biochemical mechanisms that underlie biological processes. Topics include macromolecular machines such as the ribosome, the proteosome, fatty acid synthases as a paradigm for polyketide synthases and non-ribosomal polypeptide synthases, and polymerases. Emphasis is on experimental methods used to unravel these processes and how these processes fit into the cellular context and coordinate regulation.

This class has 5.12, 5.07, and 7.05 as prerequisites.

5.08 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by L. Kiessling and R. Raines.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 2-105.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
