Fall 2012 not offered
|Certificates: Molecular Biophysics|
This course is intended for juniors and seniors who have completed organic chemistry but who have not necessarily taken much biology. The goal of this course is to help students develop/enhance their biochemical intuition by thinking about organic chemistry concepts as applied to biological systems. This course will involve thinking about reaction mechanisms and will not be focused on metabolic pathways. Current topics in the literature will be covered including discussion and analysis of de novo enzyme design (first published in spring 2008).
