Chemistry 5430: Carbohydrate Chemistry

Chemistry 5430 will be offered next semester, SP 18.  The main course objective is for everyone to gain a better understanding of glycol-science.  Students will develop a working knowledge of the synthesis, conformation, and biological importance of carbohydrates and oligosaccharides.   This course is designed to help develop scientific problem solving skills and application of organic and biochemistry to new situations.

This course will be taught by Dr. Christopher Callam on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:35 am – 10:55 am. If you are interested in this the chemistry of carbohydrates, learn more by checking out this flyer CH5430Callam-13sgc33!
