Welcome to MCB 450. On behalf of the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, we welcome you to the Spring 2018 semester of MCB 450, Introductory Biochemistry. The course is designed to impart an overall general understanding of the biochemical principles that govern the functioning of living systems. We hope that at the end of the semester, each of you will not only have learned much that will be of use to you in careers such as medicine, nutrition, and the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and biofuel industries, but that you will also be filled with the excitement of biochemistry.Most recent announcements will be at the top of this list. 2.28.18 The due date for homework 5 has been changed to March 6th at 11am in LON-CAPA. 2.28.18 Exam II will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 8th. It will cover Lectures 8 through 13. Room assignments are posted at ""Exams"". Note that the rooms are not necessarily the same as those for Exam I. A sample Exam II, with and without answers, has been posted under “Exams”. Dr. Orlean will hold a Review Session for Exam II on Thursday, March 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. in 112 Gregory Hall (in place of lecture). If you would like him to go over any particular topic, please e-mail him by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7th. Dr. Orlean's Office Hours on Wednesday, March 7th will be extended and run from 1:00p.m. to 2:30 p.m. If you need a Conflict Exam, you must contact Renee Alt by 5 p.m. on March 6th. 2.8.18 Exam 1 will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 8th. It will cover Lectures 1 through 7. Room assignments will be posted at ""Exams"". A Sample Exam 2, with and without answers, has been posted under “Exams”. Dr. Orlean will hold a Review Session for Exam 1 on Thursday, Thursday, February 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. in 112 Gregory Hall (in place of lecture). If you would like him to go over any particular topic, please e-mail him by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7th. Dr. Orlean's Office Hours on Wednesday, Feb 7th will be extended and run from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. If you need a Conflict Exam, you must contact Renee Alt by 5 p.m. on February 7th. 1.14.17 TA office hours will start January 22nd. Please look under the Instructors and Office Hours link for all of the Instructor and TA office hours. 1.14.17 First class for MCB 450 will meet January 16th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. in 112 Gregory Hall. Dr. Orlean will be lecturing. Chemistry and metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, vitamins, and coenzymes and their relation to the regulation and processes of organisms, cells, and subcellular components. Students who enter the University Fall 2011 or later are responsible for additional course-based tuition of $300 unless they are already paying differential tuition during the term of course enrollment. Additional fees may apply. See Class Schedule. 3 undergraduate hours. 3 graduate hours. Credit is not given for both MCB 450 and MCB 354. Prerequisite: CHEM 232 or CHEM 236, or equivalent, or consent of instructor. Not intended for students in the MCB or biochemistry curricula. Does anyone know if this class is going to be curved? It is a hard class for me because I have never taken any college-level biology course before. I was expecting the class to be based mostly on orgo or acid-base chemistry which I am comfortable with. I didn't expect so much bio in this class since there wasn't any bio prereq. Does anyone have study tips as well? The curve is built into the grading scale (i.e. the class isn't a straight 90/80/70). Due to that, there is no exam curve or end-of-class curve. You may want to consider dropping the course and take it in a few semesters once you've built up a resume of several biology classes. MCB 450 should not be the first biology class you take in college. From what I've heard, the exams only get harder. I hate to discourage you like this, but over the years going through undergrad (currently a senior) that Biochem is notoriously hard. If you decide to stick through it, my best study tip for the exams going forward is to familiarize yourself with the learning objectives he has at the end of each lecture. MCB 250 Molecular Genetics credit: 3 Hours. Fundamentals of molecular biology including structure of DNA, RNA and proteins, mechanisms of DNA replication, transcription and translation, gene organization, genetic variation and repair, and regulation of gene expression in Bacteria, and Eukarya. Students who enter the University Fall 2011 or later are responsible for additional course-based tuition of $300 unless they are already paying differential tuition during the term of course enrollment. Additional fees may apply. See Class Schedule. Prerequisite: MCB 150, CHEM 102 and CHEM 104, or equivalents or consent of instructor. MCB 450 Intro to Biochem.
