BIOCHEMISTRY
                                BIOCHEMISTRY
PROFESSORS ELVEHJEM, HART, chairman, LINK, PETERSON, STEENBOCK; ASSOCIATm
PROFESSORS PHILLIPS, TOTTINGHAM; ASSISTANT PROFESSORS BAUMANN, STRONG;
INSTRUCTORS JOHNSON, PLATZ.
  The courses offered in this department are intended to give a broad view
of biological
chemistry useful to the general agricultural student, and to develop men
fitted for
instructional or experimental work in the various fields of chemical activity
applied to
agriculture. Courses 110 and 120 are for students desiring a more detailed
knowledge of
the special subjects treated and are preliminary to greater specialization.
These courses
should be preceded or accompanied by work in biology and organic chemistry.
Physiol-
ogy and bacteriology are desired prerequisites. All other advanced courses
in this de-
partment are open to undergraduates and graduates who have had the necessary
prelimi-
nary training.
  1. ELEMENTARY BIOCHEMISTRY. 11; 2 or 4 cr. Introduction to the chemistry
of living
matter. Laboratory work includes chemical analysis of agricultural materials.
Prere-
quisite: Chemistry lb. Lab. fee $4.50. Mr. Elvehjem.
  3. FOOD BIOCHEMISTRY. I; 4 cr. Lectures and laboratory work on the chemistry
and metabolism of the essential food constituents: carbohydrates, fats, proteins,
etc.
Required of all home economics students. Prerequisite: Chemistry lb. Lab.
fee $4.50.

and Mr.
Johnson.
  129. ENZYMES. I: 2 cr. A course of lectures and conferences dealing with
