Basic Chemistry of Biomolecules [BT-1501]

By the end of the paper, a student should be able to:
CO1: Understand the importance of having water as a solvent system in cells
CO2: Appreciate the importance of bonding and spatial arrangements of molecules for proper functioning and stability.
CO3: Establish the concept of how proper conformations are needed for optimum functioning of the molecules and thereby the entire cell
CO4: Appreciate how proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids can contribute to structural integrity of the cell as well as the biochemical reactions.
CO5: Appreciate how a change in the structure of the molecules can lead to abnormalities, for e.g. A mutated globin results in sickle cell anaemia
CO6: Understand both the physical as well as chemical properties of these biomolecules, as these properties can be used to carry out various studies.
CO7: Appreciate experiments carried out by scientists to enable understand the structure of biomolecules, understand their properties, design of experiments to prove the same and analyse the data and give interpretations
