Glycolytic giddiness

Hey all,

I'm going to catch up on the last 2 weeks soon... I promise. But right now, I want to share my excitement about what we're doing in class.

Yes, I'm a huge nerd. We took our first exam yesterday, which contained a smattering of bio topics. Today though, we're beginning one of my favorite subjects - metabolism!

Oh yes. That means memorizing in detail all those convoluted pathways from undergrad biochem - glycolysis, the hexose phosphate shunt, beta oxidation, gluconeogenesis and more.

The lecturer's reputation precedes him. Chris Newgard, who is a professor here at Duke, has been teaching this module for years and supposedly the lecture content and delivery is excellent. I can't wait! : )

I'll let you know in a week or so if it's as good as I'm expecting.
