Program
Credits 3
Attributes
This course is designed for advanced undergraduate students. The goal of this course is for students to gain an in-depth understanding of membrane biochemistry and membrane structure/function relationships. Topics will include lipid diversity, membrane dynamics, membrane proteins and lipid rafts. A variety of laboratory techniques for probing membrane dynamics also will be discussed and different aspects of membrane research will be explored through the reading of primary literature articles.

Prerequisites

Grade of C or better in CHEM 221 and CHEM 331
