CBIO-4108 Bioquimica de Proteinas

This course covers new topics related to protein bio-chemistry research.  It begins by clarifying basic enzymatic kinetics concepts to further concentrate in the latest theories on the origin of the catalytic power of enzymes. Then, students are introduced to the techniques used to purify proteins and the techniques used are discussed to determine protein structures.  The student will learn to use computer tools to represent bio-molecule structures. Lastly, topics like artificial protein design and structural protein characteristics isolated from organisms that live in extreme environments are addressed.
