Biochemistry of Nutrition provides an introduction to the biochemical basis of nutrition, focussing on the structure and function of the macromolecules (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids) and the mechanisms by which diet affects health and can cause dysfunction and disease in the body. It will also introduce the concepts of metabolism, metabolic control and metabolic abnormalities that will be presented in greater detail in BIO3219.
