PSCI 301. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology for Pharmacists. 5 Credits.
The primary goal in this course is to ensure that students begin to understand how biological processes occur at the molecular level. Students will also study the structure and function of the molecules of living cells, with an emphasis on proteins in the context of antibiotic and other drug interactions. The course will include an introduction to biomolecules, an examination of the generation and use of metabolic energy, biosynthesis, metabolic regulation, and an introduction of the storage, transmission, and expression of genetic information. Prereq: CHEM 342 or PSCI 300. Restricted to students who have conditional acceptance in the NDSU Doctor of Pharmacy program.
