Class Objectives
/Class Outline
The purpose of this class is to learn biochemistry and related methotology. Especially, you learn about regulation of gene expression and epigenetics, one of the exiting fields in biological sciences. Also you will understand recent immunology which is very important to study the biochemical methotology.
