Biomolecules in the Third Dimension

Biology And Biomedical Sciences 2962 - Spring 2019

A computer-based laboratory for students enrolled in Bio 2960. This class gives students the opportunity to to learn biology in a new way. Students are exposed to experimental data and software visualization tools currently used in cutting edge research. Each week, biomolecules presented in Bio 2960 lecture will downloaded, viewed and manipulated in 3D using the molecular viewer PyMOL. Students will be able to study molecular interactions in greater depth than is possible in lecture. Ultimately, the laboratory is designed to help students develop their visuospatial thinking skills and to gain a deeper understanding of the macromolecules discussed in lecture. The class is highly recommended to students who identify themselves as visual/interactive learners. Topics include: protein and nucleic acid structure, signal transduction, energy transfer, replication, transcription and translation. Requires concurrent enrollment in Bio 2960 Principles of Biology I. Lab does not meet in weeks with a biology exam. Class taken for Credit/No Credit. Credit 1 unit. C. Smith, K. Hafer
