CHM 3930: Human Biochemistry




This is a one-semester 4-credit lecture course in Biochemistry targetted for pre-professional students. This is not a "survey" course. The objective is to establish and identify the chemical principles that govern biological processes covering material from typical two-semester biochemistry sequences in a single semester. Topics covered include macromolecular structure and function, enzymology and enzyme regulation, carbohydrate and fat Metabolism, biosynthetic pathways, and integrated metabolism.

BCH 5886: Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy




This is a one-semester graduate level course in the principles and applications of modern NMR spectrscopy. The course is targeted for graduate students in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biophysics, biology, and engineering. Topics covered include a detailed look at 1D and 2D NMR, including NOE and ROE, spectral editing and filtering, assignment strategies for organic and biological molecules. We also study multidimensional NMR methods, including assignment strategies, restraint measurements, and computational strategies used in biological macromolecular structure determination.
