Elected starting in the junior or senior year, this course is an optional requirement for Biochemistry students and a requirement for Honors Biochemistry students, who must elect it for a total of four credits spread out over two or more terms. The student is expected to put in a minimum of three hours a week of actual work for each credit elected.

At the end of each term, a written report evaluating the progress of the project is submitted – one copy to the faculty member and one copy for the student. Interim reports need not be lengthy, but the final report for CHEM 398 is expected to be more detailed and longer than the reports in CHEM 218.

For a student to receive biochemistry credit for CHEM 398, the student must work on a research project supervised by a member of the biochemistry concentration research faculty and the project must be approved by a biochemistry advisor. Final evaluation of the research effort and the report, as well as the grade for the course, rests with the biochemistry research faculty member.
