CHEM 5567 Chemical Biology: Structure and Function (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

A major component of chemical biology is the application of chemical tools to the study of biological systems. This course will provide an overview of techniques such as genome sequencing, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, fluorescence imaging and unnatural amino-acid incorporation into proteins, with emphasis on examples drawn from the current literature. There will also be a focus on the mechanism of action of drugs, incorporating aspects of both the chemistry and biology of drug design.
