CHEM 4720L Biochemistry Laboratory 0/6/2

Prerequisite: CHEM 4711 with a minimum grade of C or CHEM 4712 with a minimum grade of C

The laboratory course will emphasize the principles discussed in the lecture courses Biochemistry I and Biochemistry II. Half of the course will place emphasis on experiments that introduce students to the practices of protein separation, purification, quantification and assays. The other half of the course will emphasize principles from physical biochemistry and spectroscopy of biomolecules. Experiments will examine macromolecular structure and stability; protein folding; lipid bilayer structure and dynamics and enzyme kinetics. This course will provide students with experience in instrumental techniques that are used in research and industrial facilities.
