Organic chemical principles of molecular science that govern
the processes occurring in living systems are illustrated with
examples drawn from biochemistry, cell biology, and medicine.
The course deals with generalities of organic chemical reactivity
(reaction mechanisms, structure-reactivity and structure-property
relationships), with matters specifically relevant to the life
sciences (chemistry of proteins, nucleic acids, natural products,
cofactors, signal transduction), and with applications of chemical
biology in medicine and biotechnology (drug design and mechanism,
metabolism). It requires an understanding of organic reactions
and their mechanisms, with considerable focus on "arrow
