Ocular Biochemistry and Genetics (BSD10340)
This course covers the study of the molecular composition of living cells, the organization of biological molecules within the cell, and the structure and function of these biological molecules. This course concentrates on the structures of these molecules, their functions, and the strong relationship between structure and function and ocular disease. Other topics to be examined include the study of lipids as well as the kinetics and catalytic mechanisms of enzymes. The general concepts of genetics will be reviewed during the discussion of t the relationship of genetic information to various ocular genetic diseases.
