Protein Design and Engineering
MB&B 365
Spring 2013
Section: 01  

You may think of science primarily as the discovery and investigation of what exists in nature. This course focuses on the creative application of biochemical knowledge in designing and creating novel macromolecules. While this has enormous economic importance in the development of new drugs and pharmaceuticals, it is also a fundamental way of gaining knowledge about the natural world. We will investigate both aspects, focusing primarily on protein design and engineering. This course will also investigate engineering of novel functions at the organism level. You will be asked to evaluate the scientific literature and to develop hypotheses and designs of your own.
