Introduction This Study Guide is intended for use with the fifth edition of "Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry" (Nelson, D. and M. Cox), Worth Publishers, New York, 2008. The course is divided into fourten units. Each unit consists of a reading asignment and a list of objectives. You should become familiar with al the material in the reading asignment. The quizes and exams wil, however, focus on material detailed in the objectives. We recommend that you approach each unit in the following manner: 1. Look through the objectives to get an idea of what material we consider most important. 2. Read the sections of Nelson & Cox listed at the beginning of each unit (or subunit). 3. Go through the objectives in detail, looking up the answer to each one. We recommend that you write these answers in a course notebook. You wil find these notes tremendously useful as you review for quizes and exams. It is an excelent idea to also write down page references in your notes. This practice wil save you a lot of time when you want to refer to something again. 4. If you have time and interest, go back and review the reading asignment. 5. Ask questions on material that is unclear to you. 6. Take the unit quiz. Biochemistry is an exciting and rapidly expanding field. In this course we wil explore the structure and function of DNA, RNA, and proteins as wel as the chemical reactions that occur inside the cel. We hope that you wil find as much enjoyment in studying biochemistry as we do in teaching it.
