CHEM 521 - Principles of Biophysical Chemistry
Section: 001
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Chemistry (CHEM)
Department: LSA Chemistry
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
CHEM 461, BIOLCHEM 415, and CHEM 430; and permission of course director.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course is team-taught and is the second of a two-term biophysical chemistry series, BIOPHYS 520/521, but it can be taken as a stand-alone course. BIOPHYS 521 provides an overview of the theory and application of spectroscopical techniques of UV/Vis, IR, Fluorescence, Single Molecule Detection, CD, and NMR. Other topics covered include X-ray crystallography, computational methods, light scattering, ultracentrifugation. When possible, hands-on opportunities in applying some of these techniques will be offered.
