Proteomics and Genomics

Taught by Dr. Marion L. Carroll

This course will serve to introduce students to the materials and methods of DNA and protein structure and function analysis and
the Web-based computational tools developed for this study. We will analyze protein and DNA sequences from a variety of species including human. Interested students majoring in Biochemistry, Computer Science, and Math will become familiar with the tools and techniques of Bioinformatics. Biochemistry majors who have successfully advanced through Biochemistry I will be required to enroll. Math and Computer Science majors may elect to enroll without these chemistry prerequisites and only by permission. Interdisciplinary participation by faculty in Math, Computer Science, and the Pharmaceutical Sciences is expected. The laboratory section (not required for all students) will present empirical techniques in DNA and protein analysis and provide additional opportunity for students to use computational tools to identify important genetic and structural components of DNA and structural and functional components of proteins. Mathematical skills will be enforced to help students understand Web-based analysis tools and the foundation of molecular evolutionary theory.

Course begins: Spring 2004
