Course: Biochemistry Laboratory (CH-324L-1)
Offered in conjunction with CH 324. Experimental techniques are aimed at extracting and quantitating nucleic acids and proteins from cells. Purified macromolecules are analyzed using a combination of chromatographic, electrophoretic, and immunobiological methods. Students gain proficiency in operating equipment and instruments commonly found in a biochemical laboratory. The course also includes visits to off-campus sites engaged in advanced and highly specialized biochemical experimentation. 3 hours. 1 credit.
