BTEC 240 - Techniques for Biomolecular Research


(3 semester hours)
Prerequisites: BTEC 170  or permission of instructor  
Description: This course gives an in-depth, hands-on experience to fundamental laboratory techniques applied to bio-molecular research to the student in life sciences. The Biotech (life science in general) industry heavily depends on ability for use of these techniques for extraction, purification and characterization of biomolecules (proteins, a variety of types) using several bioanalytical techniques. This course allows the student to get a "life-at-the-bench" experience in application of these techniques. The course covers topics related to successful design of protocols for extraction, purification, characterization, and analysis of structure-function relationship of biomolecules for application in diagnostics, therapeutics, and several industrial applications. It also offers experience in using instrumentation generically used in medical, pharmaceutical, environmental, and other BTEC industries with an introduction to Good Laboratory Practices (GLP). Offered Spring Semester, annually.
