IDSP 116 - Biochemical and Molecular Methods

1 Credit

The principles and application of common methods used for detection and analysis of macromolecular structure, function, and interaction will be discussed. This course covers biochemical methods of separation and detection of macromolecules as well as molecular analysis. Three hours of introductory biostatistics are also included. The goals of the course are: to develop an understanding of basic methods applied to the study of proteins and nucleic acids; to become familiar with the instrumentation used for these methods - familiar in the sense that students should be aware what instrumentation is required and have a basic idea how it is used; and to become aware of the ways that these methods and techniques are applied to study of macromolecules, i.e., have some idea what methods can/should be used to study a particular problem. There will be some form of out of class work for most lectures, including problems, literature reviews, and visits to core facilities and major equipment and use of some equipment. There will be one exam at the end of the course.

Course is offered: Fall, Annually

Prerequisites for course: to be taken concurrently with IDSP 111 , IDSP 112 .
