Course description and aims

In this lecture, we will explain the organic chemistry of biomolecules for students who have taken organic chemistry 1st to 6th.

Student learning outcomes

By taking this lecture, students will acquire the following abilities.
(1) Understanding of the organic chemistry of carbohydrates.
(2) Understanding of the organic chemistry of amino acids, peptides and proteins.
(3) Understanding of the organic chemistry of lipids.
(4) Understanding of the organic chemistry of nucleic acids.

Course taught by instructors with work experience

Applicable How instructors' work experience benefits the course
In this lecture, on the basis of his experience in the pharmaceutical company and the national research institute, the importance of bioorganic chemistry will be extensively studied in order to develop the bifunctional molecules.
