BIO 4120 - Biochemistry Lab


Prerequisite(s): ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I - II [CH 2400 and CH 2500 (with LABORATORIES, CH 2410 and CH 2510); concurrent with BIOCHEMISTRY (BIO 4110)
Rather than a set of cookbook-style lab exercises, this course takes the real-world approach to true unknowns and unexpected outcomes. Students will design experiments in order to discover the true answers instead of simply confirming prior facts. This laboratory course uses the entire semester to elaborate the content details of the associated Biochemistry course by interrogating the succinate dehydrogenase (complex II) component of the tricarboxylic acid cycle in E. coli (one of the work-horses of molecular biology cloning and protein expression). Students will emerge with career experience and competence. 1 CREDIT; concurrent with BIOCHEMISTRY (BIO 4110). Credit(s): 1
