Principles of Biochemistry

About This Principles of Biochemistry Online Course

The online course in Principles of Biochemistry by Harvard University professors integrates an introduction to the structure of macromolecules and a biochemical approach to cellular function. The principles of biochemistry topics address topics that include; how protein function will include enzyme kinetics, the characterization of major metabolic pathways and their interconnection into tightly regulated networks, and the manipulation of enzymes and pathways with mutations or drugs. An exploration of simple cells (red blood cells) to more complex tissues (muscle and liver) will be used as a framework to discuss the progression in metabolic complexity. Learners of the principles of biochemistry course will also develop problem solving and analytical skills that are more generally applicable to the life sciences.

What you’ll learn in the principles of biochemistry course

  • The structure and function of the chemical building blocks of life
  • How to navigate protein structures using PyMOL
  • The central role of enzymes in catalyzing the reactions of life
  • The primary metabolic pathways that power cells
  • The intricate mechanisms that regulate cellular metabolism
  • The integration of biochemical processes in the context of cells, tissues, and whole organisms
