BCM 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Modern Proteomics

4 credits (Spring)
Proteins are the workhorses of the cell. They perform a wide variety of functions, including catalyzing metabolic reactions, DNA replication, transcription, transporting macromolecules, and driving signal transduction pathways. In this course, we will examine modern proteomic strategies and techniques that are used to study proteins and post-translational modifications on a large scale. Students will learn about a variety of different methods used in the analysis of proteomes, and they will conduct their own experiments to construct a protein interaction network and to quantify post-translational modifications using mass spectrometry.

Prerequisite: BCM 262 .
Instructor: M. French
