This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phones camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes youll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

'Bioorganic chemistry studies the chemistry of organic biomolecules. It is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that combines organic chemistry and biochemistry. Please recall that organic chemistry investigates all molecules that contain carbon and hydrogen, and biochemistry focuses on the network of molecular pathways in the cell. Bioorganic chemistry employs organic chemistry to explain how enzymes catalyze the reactions of metabolic pathways and why metabolites react the way they do. Bioorganic chemistry aims to expand organic-chemical research on structures, synthesis, and kinetics in a biological direction.
This one-semester course will cover several advanced chemistry topics and will discuss the chemistry behind biological processes. The course begins by introducing you to the mechanisms behind the most common biological chemical reactions (Unit 1). You will then take a closer look at the metabolic processes of biomolecules. You will apply your knowledge of the structural features of organic molecules to biomolecules (Unit 2). The next four units will cover the chemistry of metabolic processes in the cell: lipid metabolism (Unit 3), carbohydrate metabolism (Unit 4), amino acid metabolism (Unit 5), and nucleotide metabolism (Unit 6). This course will also discuss the medical significance of the relevant deficiencies of these pathways.
This course features a number of Khan Academy™ videos. Khan Academy™ has a library of over 3,000 videos covering a range of topics (math, physics, chemistry, finance, history and more), plus over 300 practice exercises. All Khan Academy™ materials are available for free at www.khanacademy.org.
