BCH 701 – Macromolecular STRUCTURE and function (2019-present)

Course description: Introduction to the current understanding and methods used for the study of structures, thermodynamics and conformational dynamics of proteins, nucleic acids and membranes in the context of metabolism.

Learning Outcomes: Understand current concepts in metabolic biochemistry, including coordinate regulation and therapeutic interventions; evaluate the contributions of metabolic inputs to cellular function; select a structural technique that is appropriate to characterize the structure of a particular protein (membrane protein, protein complex, disordered protein, PT modified protein, enzyme); gain familiarity and confidence in reading the current primary scientific literature; apply knowledge to analyzing problems in structural biochemistry.

Instructors: Dr. Joe Barycki, Dr. Flora Meilleur
