CHEM 359 - Chemical Biology

Cross-Listed as BIOL 359 
Our understanding of the molecular bases for biological processes has advanced in tandem with our ability to manipulate chemical structures in the laboratory. Progress in these two fields has led to an intellectual convergence, in which scientists 1) use the tools of chemistry to manipulate biological systems and 2) take inspiration from biological designs to address chemical problems. Such approaches have been given the name “chemical biology, ” and represent some of the most fertile ground for discoveries in chemistry and biology over the past decade. This course will rely heavily on current chemical biology research literature to introduce students to recent developments in the field, with examples drawn from metabolic engineering, protein design, and directed molecular evolution. Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 352  or   . Student must earn a grade of C- or higher in prerequisite course(s). Offered occasionally. (4 Credits)
