Research methods in the study of proteins and DNA; focus on preparation for working with faculty members on their research. Faculty approval is required prior to registration. Laboratory fee.
Develop molecular/biochemical laboratory skills used in research by GW scientists.. Learn to analyze protein a) concentrations using a spectrophotometer, b) molecular weights by gel electrophoresis, c) identity by immunoblot. Be able to recognize the different types of amino acids within protein molecules and the chemical bonds involved in protein structure. Analyze the catalytic activity of enzymes. Trace the information in DNA to the production of RNA and protein molecules. Identify and analyze the presence of DNA with PCR. Be knowledgeable of examples of specific protein functions and 3D structures. Create an evolutionary tree of closely related proteins.
