Intended as a comprehensive treatment of areas central to modern biochemistry for entering graduate students. Lectures concurrent with BCHM 5771 covering the same topics except for the requirement of a written research proposal. Formerly CHEM 5770.
  • BCHM 5771 - Advanced General Biochemistry 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Lect. In-depth analysis of DNA structure and replication, RNA synthesis and processing, protein synthesis, enzyme function and mechanism, protein structure, protein dynamics, and physical chemistry of macromolecules. Intended as a comprehensive treatment of areas central to modern biochemistry for entering graduate students. Formerly CHEM 5771.
  • BCHM 5776 - Scientific Ethics and Responsible Conduct in Research
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Lect. Advanced discussion of topics in scientific ethics, including requirements for responsible conduct of research, case histories of fraud, research misconduct, ethical misconduct and development of professional values and ethical standards. Same as MCDB 5776.
  • BCHM 5821 - Special Topics in Signaling and Cell Regulation
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Lect. Reviews and evaluates literature on subjects of current interest in signal transduction transcription, cell cycle progression, and cell regulation. Primarily for graduate level presentation of special topics by students, faculty, and research staff. May be repeated up to 5 total credit hours. Department consent required. Formerly CHEM 5821.
  • CHEM 5801 - Advanced Signal Transduction and Cell Cycle Regulation
