Description:

Welcome to Biochemistry!  

 

In this class, students will learn basic chemistry concepts and how they play a role in the structure and function of all living organisms.  For example, we will discuss the reasons that atoms bond to form the molecules needed for life and apply that knowledge to the function of those molecules in all living organisms.
