  Department              :           Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Course Number      :           CLS 232

Course Title             :           Clinical Biochemistry ( I )

Credit Hours            :           3 + 1 = 4

Course Description:

This course illustrates structures and functions of bimolecules which includes carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, enzymes and hormones.

 In the practical part of this course, students study the detection and quantitative determination of some of these bimolecules.
