Metabolic and Physiological Chemistry II University of Tsukuba
This course provides an overview of metabolism, which supports all life activities. In the first part of the course, we will discuss the following four topics; (1) Catabolism and Anabolism, (2) Energy conversion, (3) Nutrient transport and Assimilation, (4) Regulation of metabolic pathways. At the latter part, we will explore the environmental regulation of photosynthesis (light response, CO2 response) with the goal of understanding plant adaptations to different environments. We are welcome the students who did not take Metabolic Biochemistry Course I.
To understand how biological events are well organized and how cells protect environmental stresses.
Links up with the academic goal to understand how cellular metabolism is well regulated by learning about various metabolic pathways, energy producing, caprturing and storing mechanisms. This will help students to understand how biological events are well organized and how cells protect environmental stresses.
Expected to have successfully completed learning of priciples of biochemistry and plant physiology prior to enrollment in this course.
Short test (80%) and Shor reports (20%). Minimum requirement of attendance to lecture (60%)
