CHE 4246 - Biochemistry II Laboratory
Credits: 2 hrs
This course will focus on the theory and practice of experimental biochemistry and molecular biology. Laboratory techniques and concepts will include spectroscopic analysis of protein and nucleic acids, isolation and purification of biomolecules by chromatography, and analysis by gel electrophoresis. Experiments will also include techniques in protein crystallization, enzyme kinetics study, and evaluation of protein structure and stability by Circular Dichroism and Fluorescence. Biochemical and molecular biology techniques for the expression of a protein in bacteria will include transformation, screening and propagation, isolation of the expressed protein and its purification and characterization.
