The structure and function of biological molecules, enzymology, metabolism and bioenergetics, and recombinant DNA technology.
BCMB 3100 Resource Page
Seminars, readings, and discussions of topics related to biochemistry, biotechnology, and molecular biology. Scientific writing will be emphasized, and visits to laboratories may be scheduled.
Selected topics in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and biotechnology involved in modern medicine. Includes cloning, stem cells, endocrinology, human genetics, gene testing, and human population genetics. Bioethical issues will also be discussed. Both formal lectures and discussion…
A focus on the remarkable impact that genome sequencing projects is having on virtually all aspects of biochemistry, as well as on medicine and biotechnology. An introduction to a broad range of 'omic' topics, including functional genomics, microarrays, proteomics, physiological genomics, and…
A comprehensive treatment of biochemistry and molecular biology stressing structures of biological molecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids, enzymology and selected aspects of metabolism and bioenergetics.
A comprehensive treatment of biochemistry and molecular biology stressing aspects of metabolism, metabolic regulation, bioenergetics, and recombinant DNA methodologies.
Basic techniques in biochemistry and molecular biology, including enzyme assays and purification, nucleic acid purification and characterization, chromatography, spectroscopy, and other modern methods.
The principles of physical chemistry applied to biological molecules and systems, including current approaches in structural biology.
Integrated treatment of human biochemistry and selected topics on the biochemical basis of human disease. Examples will be given of inheritable and acquired disorders.
Various topics in human biochemistry and pathophysiology.
Examination of the mechanistic basis of inherited and acquired human disorders at the molecular level. Background into the cellular pathways involved in each disease will be presented as well as discussion of recent advances in research and therapeutics.
Instrumental aspects of NMR spectroscopy including pulsed Fourier transform techniques, proton and carbon-13 techniques used in the analysis of organic compounds, polypeptides and other small molecules. The focus is on the operation of NMR spectrometers presently available in the University of…
Principles and instrumental aspects of NMR spectroscopy, including pulsed Fourier transform techniques, proton and carbon-13 techniques used in the analysis of organic compounds, polypeptides and other small molecules. Students also learn to operate NMR spectrometers in the Chemistry Department…
Applied aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology in various fields, with emphasis on the use of recombinant DNA methods and protein engineering.
Molecular and biochemical regulation of plant metabolic pathways activated in response to environmental cues, environmental stress, and interaction with pathogenic and symbiotic organisms. Cell wall formation (primary wall, wood), secondary metabolism (lignin, flavonoids, phenolics), wounding,…
The objective of these courses is to train students in the basic techniques used in biochemistry and molecular biology, and the application of the scientific method. Students typically become part of a dynamic research environment and gain experience in both the experimental approach and the…
The objective of these courses is for students to conduct research projects in a team of undergraduate researchers, their faculty mentors, and other scientists such as graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty collaborators. Students will develop research skills, including…
Laboratory research in biochemistry and molecular biology under the supervision of a faculty member. A thesis summarizing the literature in the field and the student's research findings is required. 13 hours lab per week.
