Mechanisms of DNA Damage and Repair|
Spring 2010 not offered
Students taking this course will learn about the sources and consequences of DNA damage and about the biochemical processes dedicated to DNA repair in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, including humans. Presentation and discussion of current research on DNA damage, repair, and mutagenesis with emphasis on protein structure-function and enzyme kinetics, as well as diseases associated with defective DNA repair, will be an important part of the course.
