About the Course

Everyone knows that energy is essential for sustaining life. How can you define energy in life? Have ever thought about ways of how carbohydrates like glucose from your diet can be used for extracting energy? A scientific field that focuses on energy production and flow though living cells and organisms is called bioenergetics. Energy metabolism covers various biochemical ways of energy transformation and regulatory mechanisms of over thousands chemical reactions. Without fine control of those metabolic processes, cells and organisms cannot maintain activities linked to life. This 7 week-course will give you a clear introduction to the basic fundamentals of energy metabolism. We will first establish the concept of energy metabolism and subsequently examine biochemical steps involved in energy production from glucose oxdiation as well as glucose synthesis via photosynthesis. We will also learn about metabolic reactions related to fat as well as regulatory actions among different organs. Finally, dysregulated energy metabolism in pathological conditions such as diabetes and cancer will be discussed. Everyone knows that energy is essential for sustaining life.

I found this to be a very interesting course and the slides used in each session were informative and of high quality. I didn't purchase the course, so I wasn't able to do any of the quizzes because they were only available to those who had upgraded. Usually, Coursera courses include "free" quizzes as well as the paid ones, so this is a slight negative for me, hence I have scored it 4 stars rather than the 5 stars that it deserves based on the lectures themselves.

The videos do not flow (many pauses, repetitions), there are several annoying sounds in the background and the intonation is flat. The content seems quite interesting and with the right level, however, I can not keep watching the videos.
