First Long Quiz postponed

August 1, 2011

1 August 2011: Finally got access to wordpress.

The first long quiz on proteins and enzymes will be on Monday, August 8, class time. Wednesday, August 3 will be lecture/discussion day to finish off enzyme regulation.

We will also start scheduling make-up classes to get back on track.


A new semester, and a new team

November 8, 2010

This second semester of 2010-2011, we have some new members to the biochem teaching team. Welcome to Ms. Juanilita T. Waniwan. We also have a large number of students in the laboratory class- welcome, Biology majors, to Biochem Lab, under Ms. Mailyn M. Terrado and new team member, Mr. Jerome P. Panibe.

Have fun, everyone!

Don’t forget the reports coming up later today! They will be part of the exam on Monday, September 29.

Also, check out the links and downloads page for additional enrichment– the molecular visualization links should be helpful. Too bad we don’t have time for bioinformatics in class, but you can explore some of the links on your own.

It seems that Eid is on October 2. So, please get ready to stay on September 29 til about 9 pm for the last set of reports, unless the reporters would prefer to meet up on another evening or Saturday.
