BCHM 320 - PHYS CHEM FOR BIOSCIENCE
Survey of the principles of physical chemistry that govern molecular structure and chemical reactivity in biochemical systems.
Topics include thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics, computational chemistry and spectroscopic techniques and their application for the study of structure and functioning of biomolecules.
BCHM 344 - BIOINORGANIC CHEMISTRY
Survey of biological molecules that involve metal ions and/or metal-containing cofactors; the interaction and biological significance of metal ions including medicinal applications.
BCHM 354 - EXP. MTHDS BIOCHEM & BIOTECH
Biochemical techniques including enzyme and lipid assays, isolation, and analysis of macromolecules.
BCHM 355 - BIOCHEMISTRY
Electron transport chain, protein structure, enzyme kinetics, biosynthesis and intermediary metabolism of amino acids, and carbohydrates and lipids. Included in the biotechnology certificate program.
BCHM 357 - ADVANCED BIOCHEMISTRY
This course covers advanced topics in the chemistry of life and is designed to build upon the fundamental understanding of biochemical topics as presented in introductory biochemistry. The course will focus on protein structure-function relationships and metabolic pathways in human and non-human organisms. Modern biochemical problems and new developments in biochemical techniques will also be explored through primary literature readings and student presentations.
BCHM 364 - PROTEIN STRUCTURE DETERMINATION
Computer methods for converting electron microscopy of purified proteins into 3D protein structures.
BCHM 392 - RESEARCH IN BIOCHEMISTRY
Independent science laboratory research experience under the guidance of a faculty researcher; 1 to 4 semester hours total may be applied toward the BS degree. Students may register in consecutive semesters.
BCHM 393 - BIOCHEMISTRY SEMINAR
This course primarily involves searching, reading, and critiquing primary literature on biochemical topics, learning how to give a technical seminar, and presenting a seminar to technical audience. Weekly assignments will consist of reading, discussing, and writing short reviews of recent biochemical research published in the literature. You will learn how to give a technical presentation by attending and critiquing seminars presented by speakers within and outside of the Roosevelt community, and by preparing and giving a presentation on a literature topic of your choice.
BCHM 395 - INDEPENDENT STUDY
Independent library research culminating in a formal review paper on a topic approved by the instructor.
