BIOL-4733 Animal Nutrition
This course provides a basic understanding of the fundamentals of vertebrate nutrition and builds from what biology majors already know about physiology, biochemistry and general biology. Emphases are placed on digestion, absorption, and functions of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, nucleic acids, vitamins, minerals, and water to provide students with the ability to apply the logic of science in understanding diet and make decisions regarding health and nutrition of domestic animals. This course also integrates energy balance, general health, disease, and metabolism in order to consider nutrition as an integrative field.
