Course Descriptions

BIOL 39500M MacroMolecules

Session Offered:

Spring,Fall Credit 3


BIOL 231 and 241


The course focuses on the structural basis of function of macromolecules in a cell by providing an introduction to:  the biophysical and biochemical properties of macromolecules; the physico-chemical basis of structure-function relationships and how structures of macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies are determined.  Impact of structural biology in enhancing our mechanistic knowledge of broad range of cellular processes will be emphasized through case studies using example of individual proteins to large macromolecular complexes such as viruses.  Hands-on laboratory sessions will provide training in handling bioinformatics and structural data.
