Biochemistry provides a molecular description of biological structure and function. This course provides an overview of molecular structure, metabolic pathways, gene expression and inborn metabolic diseases. This course utilizes case-based learning sessions to reinforce subject material covered in lecture periods, to expand knowledge and understanding of the biochemical and genetic basis of diseases, and to illustrate applications of the subject material to present and future clinical medicine. Emphasis is placed on modes of inheritance, recurrence risks, pathogenesis, screening options, diagnostic testing, natural history, treatment options, psychosocial and genetic counseling implications.
