Announcements

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.

-- Lin-Feng Chen, Auinash Kalsotra, and Peter Orlean
