BIO 451 Molecular Biology Techniques

Objectives

This course is designed to teach techniques used in the study of proteins and nucleic acids.  The specific objectives of this course are the following:

  • To learn how buffer components are used for the isolation and analysis of proteins and nucleic acids.
  • To learn and understand laboratory techniques used to isolate and analyze cellular proteins.
  • To learn and understand laboratory techniques used to isolate and analyze cellular nucleic acids.
  • To learn and understand laboratory techniques used for gene editing.

 

Pre-requisites

            Cell and Molecular Biology (BIO 310) is required.  Biochemistry (CHM 327-329) is recommended.  As you enter this course, you should be able to explain cell structure, structure of macromolecules and the processes of DNA replication, transcription and translation.
