Biochemistry Courses

56:115:511,512 Biochemistry I,II (3,3) Study of the structure and function of proteins and enzymes. Analysis of the chemistry of carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Detailed survey of metabolic pathways, with an emphasis on regulation.
56:115:522 Protein Structure and Function (3) Basic structural principles of polypeptides, mechanisms of enzyme catalysis, biosynthesis and degradation of proteins, biophysical techniques used in the determination of peptide and protein structure, protein folding, protein engineering, catalytic antibodies, peptide and protein de novo design, solid-phase peptide synthesis, and interactive computer graphics modeling.
56:115:524 Pharmaceutical Chemistry (3) Drug research is a challenging: numerous attributes of drug molecules need to be simultaneously optimized. The class will focus on the molecular similarities of compounds with potential pharmaceutical applications. Absorption, distribution, metabolism, and exclusion (ADME) as well as toxicity are critical reasons to determine whether a compound will be an efficacious drug-like compound. This class will educate students who plan to be engaged in the research and design of new pharmaceutical compounds.
56:115:527 Bionanotechnology (3) Bionanotechnology is an emerging field that applies the fundamentals of nanotechnology to solve relevant biological and chemical problems and refines new methods and tools for medicine and energy. Nanotechnology refers to the revolutionary technology that manipulates matter with matter with at least one dimension sized from 1-100 nanometers. Molecular structures exhibit unique properties at this scale where the quantum phenomenon starts to play an important role as compared to bulk materials. Bionanotechnology describes the overlapping of multidisciplinary activities that evolve as photonics, chemistry, biology, biophysics, nanomedicine, and engineering converge.
56:115:575,576 Special Topics in Biochemistry (BA,BA) Subject matter varies according to the expertise of the instructor and is drawn from areas of current biochemical interest.
56:115:619,620 Individual Studies in Biochemistry (BA,BA) Designed for students conducting original projects in chemistry in lieu of a research thesis. The project is designed and conducted in consultation with a sponsor from, or designated by, the graduate faculty.
56:115:701,702 Research in Biochemistry (BA,BA) Open only to students working on research for their thesis. Prerequisite: Permission of thesis adviser.
