Course Description: We will cover the basic biochemical mechanisms by which
prokaryotes couple exogenous energy sources with the metabolic processes
required for survival and growth. We will explore how prokaryotes produce
ATP, maintain pH homeostasis, and transport solutes. Central to the course
is an introduction to basic metabolic pathways.
Required text: The Physiology and Biochemistry of Prokaryotes, second
edition, by David White.
Weekly assignments: Text readings and problem-solving homework sets.
Exams/papers: Three-four written essay exams - no papers.
