Enzymology

Detailed Overview

This course is a beginner to intermediate level  course in enzymology designed specifically for students in science, biochemistry, and medical schools. The course will cover a wide range of subjects such:

What you’ll learn

  • Understand the role of kinetics in enzymatic reactions.
  • Differentiate between equilibrium and steady state kinetics and analyze kinetic data.
  • Solve kinetic related exercises and estimate important parameter (Km. Vmax, Kcat etc).
  • Understand the kinetics of enzyme inhibition and regulation.
  • Comprehend the role of kinetics in understanding reaction mechanisms.
  • Have the essential knowledge about enzymes which prepares students for more detailed courses if they are acquiring a higher degree.
