Biomolecular EngineeringBME128L Protein Engineering Laboratory

Students address a current scientific question about protein stability using structure-guided protein engineering. Specifically, Students use recombinant DNA technology to produce an engineered protein that is predicted to have enhanced stability. Students then assess its stability with differential scanning fluorimetry. Students are billed a materials fee.


Prerequisite(s): BIOC 100A or BIOL 100; and BIOL 101L, BIOL 20L, or BME 21L. Previous or concurrent enrollment in BME 128 is required. Enrollment is restricted to junior and senior bioengineering, bioinformatics, and biomolecular engineering and bioinformatics majors; other majors by permission of instructor.
