Only send emails to:[email protected] Time and PlaceA. Lectures are in LH 001 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 12:00 pm-01:00 pmB. Discussion sections are in LH 014 (A01) and LH 010 (A02). Please go to BU brain to see where your discussion section is located Mondays 03:30 pm-05:30 pmVII. Objectives and ExpectationsA. Concepts to learn: (1) How the structures of major macromolecular components of cells make them suitable for their function with emphasis on membrane transport proteins and enzymes(2) Biochemical reactions and pathways central to energy generation and biosynthesis of macromolecules(3) Regulation of those metabolic processes(4) Integration of these concepts B. Skills to develop: Application of the new concepts requires students to These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture. GradeBuddy is best used as a supplement to your own notes, not as a substitute.(1) formulate hypotheses based on empirical data(2) design experiments to test those hypotheses(3) present and analyze data (4) develop problem solving skills(5) develop communication skills C. Assist with career goals: (1) Become aware of careers that require and/or are strengthened by good foundation in biochemistry(2) Companion course to Biochemistry Laboratory, a course that teaches basic labskills to prepare students for entry-level or graduate-level laboratory workVIII. Course FormatA. Each discussion session may be a combination of discussion, in-class work, and quizzes. The second hour of the discussion section is scheduled to give time for quizzes and for extended time for tests. If not used for extending time for quizzes or testing, this time may be used for guided seat work, discussion and review. B. For the discussion section, specific seats will be assigned to students at the beginning of the semester, according to their course registration number, and students will keep these seats throughout the semester.C. Note that the second hour of the discussion section is a regularly scheduled class time so every student is expected to have access to the instructors even if their schedules conflict with office hours.IX. CreditsA. This course is a 4-credit course, which means that in addition to the scheduled meeting times, students are expected to do at least 9.5 hours of course-related work outside of class each week during the semester. This includes time spent completing assigned readings, studying for quizzes and examinations, and other course-related tasks.B. Required for the Biochemistry major, must be taken for a letter gradeUpper-level biology course elective for the Biology major if taken for a letter grade May also fulfill requirements for other majors as specified in the Academic BulletinX. PrerequisitesA. Organic Chemistry I and IIConcepts of chemical bonding, the reactions / mechanisms relating to alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, carboxylic acid derivatives, amines, saturated and unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons. B. Introductory Chemistry Concepts of chemical bonding, free energy, enthalpy, entropy, chemical equilibria, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry, and uv-visible spectroscopy. C. Introductory Cell and Molecular BiologyConcepts of protein structure, how enzymes catalyze reactions, membranes and subcellular compartments, glycolysis and the TCA cycle, electron transport, oxidative phosphorylation, photosynthesis, signal transduction, transcription and protein translation. XI. Required MaterialA. Textbook: Berg, Tymoczko and Stryer, Biochemistry, 7th edition, WH Freeman, publishers. B. iClicker: iClickers will be used in this class and your responses will count for 5% of your grade.1. Purchase an iClicker (not iClicker2), available at the BU Bookstore. 2. Go to www.iclicker.com and register your iClicker, using your Blackboard user name (not BU number, not email address).3. Instructions are provided on the back of the device, in the manual and on iclicker.com.4. At the beginning of EACH class, please:a. Switch on your iClickerb. Set the frequency to AA (in LH1), the instructions are printed on the back of the device.c. A green light should light up once the frequency is set.5. Set Frequency of IClickera. Press and hold the On/Off button until the Power indicator light begins flashing.b. Enter the 2-character frequency code using the buttons (A B C D) on the clicker.6. Polling a. Once the instructor has opened a poll, votes can be submitted. There is a time limit.b. Vote: press A, B, C, D or E.c. If your vote was registered, a green light flashes up.d. If you submit your vote before the poll is opened or after the poll is closed, a red light will flash – your vote was not registered. Try again. Check your frequency setting.7. Grading a. After you registered your iClicker on www.iclicker.com, your votes can be assigned to you. b. Votes are not anonymous.c. Clicker votes are graded for participation, not for correctness. d. You earn points every time you vote! e. To offset technical difficulties, 75% of votes are enough to earn full grade points. For that reason, complaints about technical issues will normally not considered. **If 25 percent of classes are missed unless valid reasons aredocumented, and all other class requirements are fullfilled, it is up to the instructor to fail or pass a student.8. iClicker Question: How should I prepare for the discussion section? a. Be prepared for a quiz. b. Be prepared for a problem set.c. Have paper and pens handy, expect a two hour long session.d. Review the previous course material.e. All of the aboveX. Tests and GradingA. Scope and Depth1. Expect questions on all topics covered in class to the depth discussed in class or as exemplified in assignments. Assume that you will need to know chemical structures of
