Course Outcomes

1. The students learn about each class of biological molecules and how their structure relates to their function.
2. The students will also learn the fundamental principles behind enzymes and their function, membrane organization and trafficking, and signaling, or how bio information flows and networks and ultimately governs the functions of an organism.
