PROTEIN BIOTECHNOLOGY SPRING 2009 (3 Credits) COURSE OUTLINE Professor: Menashi Cohenford, PhD, MT Required Protein Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Walsh, Gary (Wiley and Text: Sons, 2002). Phone: 696-2697 Location of BBSC 125 Class Class Hours Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30 pm-1:45pm Prerequisites IST 241 or CHM 212 or BSC 120 Office: Robert C. Byrd Biotechnology Science Center 241 H Office Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9am-11:15 am or by appointment E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Course Objective: The course is designed to provide you with an introduction to protein classes, structure, folding, stability, purification, and characterization. Emphasis will be placed on enzymes, genetically engineered therapeutic proteins and their functions. Additional focus will be devoted to the immune system, immune surveillance mechanism, and the development of diagnostic tools for monitoring analytes of clinical significance. Grades: Student grades will be calculated as follows: Undergraduate Students Graduate Students Exam 1: 25% Exam I: 25% Exam II: 25% Exam II: 25% Final Exam 25% Final Exam: 25% Quizzes: 25% Quizzes: 15% _____ *Project 10% Total Points: 100% 100% Final grade in the class will be based on the following criteria: A: 90-100 B: 80-89 C: 70-79 D: 60-70 F: Below 60 2 Exams: The exams will be focused on the materials presented in class. PowerPoint presentations for the information covered in class will be provided. Each exam will be based on multiple choice questions and descriptive essays. These essays may be thought provoking or require you to apply learned concepts in simulated situations. I will allow for make-ups only if you have contacted me prior to the exam with a valid excuse. The final exam will be cumulative. Quizzes: Following each main topic there will be a 20 minute quiz. The quiz dates will be announced to allow for adequate preparation. The quiz may vary in format and may include both multiple choice and short answer questions. Quizzes may not be made up for any reason; however, the lowest quiz grade will be dropped. * Projects: Students taking this course for graduate credit will be each assigned a research topic. This research topic must be presented to the class in powerpoint format. The date for each presentation will be announced in advance to allow for adequate preparation. In addition, each student must submit a written report about his/her presentation. Attendance: Student attendance and participation will be required. Punctual attendance to lectures will be considered in the final grade. For example, if student with a 68 average has a full attendance record and has actively participated, that student may receive a grade of C for the course.
