This sequence provides an overview of the biochemical basis of cellular structure and function; the anabolic and catabolic processes involved in energy utilization; and cellular communication. The hierarchical organization of cellular components are discussed in terms of the structure and function of the four macromolecules: protein, lipid, carbohydrate, and nucleic acids.
