CHEM 448-448L - Biophysical Chemistry and Lab

Credits: 3, 1
A study of the fundamental principles governing the physical chemistry of biological systems. Topics covered include the forces governing protein and nucleic acid stability, the thermodynamics of protein folding and protein-ligand interactions, bioenergetics, kinetics of biochemical reactions, biological membranes and membrane transport. The physical basis of protein purification, probing protein-ligand interactions, and the determination of macromolecular structure is also discussed.  Laboratory to accompany CHEM 448.  Fundamental physical chemistry principles and techniques of physical chemistry used in studying biomacromolecules and biological systems. Prerequisites: CHEM 360  or CHEM 464  and MATH 125 . Corequisites: CHEM 448L-448.
