Changes in Biochemistry Course Offerings

There are some changes in course offerings in the upcoming academic year that you will need to take into consideration when choosing your Biochemistry courses for both the Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 semesters.

Changes in the Biochemistry Course Offerings:

Biochemistry 4105 (Immunology) will be offered this fall AND winter semesters, with more seats allocated to Biochemistry and Biochemistry(Nutrition) students.

Biochemistry 3052 (Food Microbiology) is offered in the Fall semester.

Biochemistry 4230 (Lipid and Lipoprotein Metabolism) will be offered this winter semester.

Having been absent from our Winter course offerings for two years, Biochemistry 4103 (Nucleic Acid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) will be offered this Winter semester.


Courses not offered this year:

Biochemistry 4101 (Proteins)

Biochemistry 4201 (Membranes)

Biochemistry 4210 (Biochemical Research Techniques I)


How will the absence of Biochemistry 4101, 4201 and 4210 affect you?

Biochemistry 4101 and 4201are optional course in our programs. You will need to select your Biochemistry electives carefully, to make sure that you complete the full number of courses that are required so that you can convocate in Spring 2013 as planned.

For example, students who would have chosen to do Biochemistry 4101 have the option of doing Biochemistry 4105 in the fall and those who would have done Biochemistry 4201 have the option of Biochemistry 4230 in the winter. Other options are also possible.

Students who were planning on doing Biochemistry 4210 in the fall should do Biochemistry 4211, instead.


How does Biochemistry 4105 being offered to more Biochemistry and Nutrition students affect you?

For the 2012-2013 academic year, Biochemistry 4105 will count as a specified Biochemistry elective in all of our programs.


How do the offerings of Biochemistry 3052 (in the Fall) and Biochemistry 4103 and 4230 (in the Winter) affect you?

Biochemistry 3052 will count as a specified Biochemistry elective in our Major and Honours in Nutrition programs.

Biochemistry 4103 is an optional course in all of our programs.

For the 2012-2013 academic year, Biochemistry 4230 will count as a specified Biochemistry elective in all of our programs.


Note to Biochemistry 3107 students for the Fall 2012 semester:

Students planning on taking Biochemistry 3107, should note that Dr. Mulligan will be using a new textbook beginning in the Fall 2012 semester.
