BCHM 420 - Physical Biochemistry, Lecture and Laboratory

Prerequisites, BCHM 208 , BCHM 335 PHYS 108 . Physical Biochemistry explores the structure of biological systems at the molecular level. The structure and function of biomembranes, protein structure and enzyme activity will be understood through the study of model supramolecular structures and biophysical techniques. The lab emphasizes quantitative techniques including data acquisition/statistics, use of computer data bases, molecular visualization, molecular modeling and computational chemistry methods. This course includes a lecture and required laboratory component held at different times. Fee: $75. (Offered fall semester.) 4 credits
