Graduate Courses

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2005-2006 and 2006-2007; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes made to the course inventory after the publication of this catalog.

Unless otherwise stated below, each course meets for three lecture hours a week for one semester.

CH | Chemistry

387D. Physical Methods in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Theory of physical methods used in biochemistry and molecular biology. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, an undergraduate course in physical chemistry, and an undergraduate course in biochemistry.

387K. Biochemical Techniques. Discussion of procedures and equipment used in modern biochemical investigation, with laboratory to provide experience in techniques of general importance. Two lecture hours and seven laboratory hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, six semester hours of undergraduate coursework in biochemistry, and consent of instructor.

190. Seminar in Chemistry. The equivalent of one class hour a week for one semester. May be repeated for credit when the topics vary. Offered on the credit/no credit basis only. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in chemistry.

Topic 1: Analytical-Physical Chemistry.

Topic 2: Organic Chemistry.

Topic 3: Biochemistry.

Topic 4: Inorganic Chemistry.

391L. Advanced Topics in Biochemistry. Topics include physical methods for the study of macromolecules; chemistry of proteins; enzyme chemistry; regulatory mechanisms for gene expression, protein-nucleic acid interactions. May be repeated for credit when the topics vary. Prerequisite: Graduate standing and consent of instructor.

192G. Biochemistry Student Seminar. Student presentations on current research topics. The equivalent of one lecture hour a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Graduate standing and consent of instructor.

392T. Biotransformations of Drugs and Other Nonnutritive Compounds. Absorption and metabolism of naturally occurring and synthetic nonnutritive compounds. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, and Chemistry 394 or consent of instructor.

392U. Comparative Biochemistry. Comparative aspects of protein structure, metabolism, respiration, and cellular regulation. Prerequisite: Graduate standing; and Chemistry 395G and 394, or consent of instructor.

394. Chemistry of Enzyme Systems. Prerequisite: Graduate standing and Chemistry 370.

395G. Biochemistry. Same as Biology 395G and Molecular Biology 395G. Detailed consideration of the structure and function of proteins, with discussion of enzyme mechanisms and kinetics, the biochemistry of energy production, and the metabolism of lipids and nucleotides. Prerequisite: Graduate standing. A one-year undergraduate sequence in biochemistry, such as Chemistry 339K and 339L, is strongly recommended.

395J. Molecular Biology. Same as Biology 395J and Molecular Biology 395J. Detailed consideration of prokaryotic and eukaryotic mechanisms of DNA replication and transcription; posttranscriptional processing of transcription products; and mechanism and regulation of the translation of messenger RNAs. Prerequisite: Graduate standing; and Chemistry 395F and 395G, or consent of instructor.

398T. Supervised Teaching in Chemistry. Teaching under close supervision of the instructor; weekly group meetings with the instructor; individual consultations; reports. Offered on the credit/no credit basis only. Prerequisite: Graduate standing and appointment as a teaching assistant in chemistry.

BCH | Biochemistry
