This course is designed to meet the needs and interests of junior Biochemistry and Molecular Biology majors foremost, but also those of upper level biology and chemistry majors with interests in biochemistry and molecular biology. The current design of the course includes in-depth analysis of protein structure function relationships and an up-to-date look at the subjects of signal transduction pathways and cancer biochemistry. Laboratory exercises emphasize techniques applied to the study of rare proteins.
Three hours of lecture, one hour of recitation and three hours of laboratory each week for one semester. Five credits.
Prerequisite(s):BI 103 - BI 104 or equivalent as determined by Department Chair.
