Description: This course examines biological problems from a chemical perspective. Starting with the structural and functional properties of amino acids, nucleotides, and sugars, we discuss how these molecules organize into higher-order structures (e.g., proteins and nucleic acids). Topics include macromolecular structure-function relationships, developing hybrid chemical/biological drugs, and modern target discovery approaches.
