BIOL 506 Biochemical Adaptations to Life Under Extreme Conditions

BIOL 506  Biochemical Adaptations to Life Under Extreme Conditions  Units: 3.00  

Biochemical adaptation is a fundamental aspect of biological diversity because it integrates molecular structure, with metabolic function and control. The course evaluates the mechanisms whereby animals, plants, and microbes acclimate at the biochemical level to 'extreme' environmental conditions such as temperature stress, high pressure, hypoxia, salt stress, oxidative stress, and desiccation.
