Rackham credit requires additional work.
Primary Instructor:

The course introduces selected experimental methods used to solve problems in modern biochemistry. The focus is on quantitative methods, i.e. methods providing "numbers" rather than "yes/no" answers. For each method, the course first lays out the necessary theoretical background and presents typical instrumentations and procedures. We then discuss applications, i.e., how the method is used to address a specific biochemical question, as well as its limitations. The course also provides examples from the scientific literature of the successful (and sometimes less successful) use of these methods.

Course Requirements:

Two written exams; participation in class discussions; written homework.

Intended Audience:

Biology, CMB, and Microbiology undergraduates; graduate students in molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry; and others interested in pursuing a research career in the biosciences.

Class Format:

3 hours lecture weekly
