CHEM 453: Cell Membrane Biochemistry

Credits 3
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.


Grade of C or better in CHEM 221 and CHEM 331
