More Information

Section Description

PBIO 187 Survey of Biochemistry Lab is an opportunity to get up close and personal with fundamental concepts of biochemistry. Through our analyses, you will gain experience in basic biochemical techniques and develop your ability to analyze data and present the findings of your analyses. Concepts we will explore include acid-base properties of amino acids, protein isolation and analysis, enzyme kinetics, carbohydrate chemistry, lipid properties, and gene expression. Analyses will involve techniques used in a broad range of scientific research such as titration, spectrophotometry, gel electrophoresis, and mass spectrometry.

Section Expectation

Required Materials 1) Laboratory handouts (posted on BlackBoard) must be printed out for each lab; 2) Ring binder (1?); 3) Bound composition-style notebook with graph paper (quad) ruling; 4) Scientific calculator; 5) Safety glasses or goggles

Evaluation

Grades will be based on assignments, lab reports (2), pre-lab quizzes, participation, laboratory notebook, and a final laboratory practical.
