Course Objectives

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the key concepts in chemistry. Course will comprise on the basic chemistry and eventually with more emphases on Organic molecules. At the end of the course the students will have basic understanding of the subject and he should be able to know how basic chemistry is used to answer a wide range of biological questions as well as how to identify which chemical experimental techniques are best used to answer a given biochemical question
