CHEM 124 Bioanalytical Chemistry

Introduces modern measurement science for biomolecules. DNA, proteins, and specialized metabolites and the methodologies for measuring them, both qualitative and quantitative, are covered. Techniques are presented with the basic framework and concepts, and modern applications are covered in lecture followed by a hands-on lab component. Provides students with the necessary framework to design and execute their own research-based bioanalytical experiments. Group lab reports are prepared as a "Letter" to Analytical Chemistry to report the findings from the laboratory-based experiments. Tests cover the material from the lecture prior to the test day and are not cumulative in nature, however, concepts may build on one another.


Prerequisite(s): CHEM 110, and satisfaction of the Entry Level Writing and Composition requirements.
