CHEM 243-01 Modern Chemical Analysis w/Lab
Instructor: Brian Wladkowski
Course Description:
The theory of chemical equilibrium as it pertains to acid-base, metal-ligand, redox, and EDTA titrations. Topics such as experimental design, sampling, calibration strategies, standardization, and the optimization and validation of experimental results will be covered. Statistical analysis of data will also be included. This class is meant to aid students in developing both a sound knowledge of experimental protocols (i.e. How many samples do we need to collect? How do we extract our analyte from the matrix? How much sample must be extracted in order to obtain a measurable result? How do we measure what's present? and in the critical evaluation of experimental results (How much confidence do we have that our results are representative of the system under study?). Three hours classroom and four hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: 132 or 141.

CHEM 342-01 Structure and Function of Biomolecules w/Lab
Instructor: Rebecca Connor
Course Description:
Permission of Instructor Required. Cross-listed with BIOL 342-01. This course is an introductory biochemistry course focused on the chemistry of the major molecules that compose living matter. The structure and function of the major classes of biomolecules (nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates) are addressed along with other topics including bioenergetics, enzyme catalysis, and information transfer at the molecular level. The laboratory portion of the course focuses on methods used to study the properties and behavior of biological molecules and their functions in the cell. Three hours lecture and four hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite 242; an introductory biology course is highly recommended. This course is cross-listed as BIOL 342.

CHEM 490-01 Chemical Biology
Instructor: Colin Rathbun
Course Description:
Chemical biology is the application of chemical techniques to study and influence biological systems. We will focus on the use of synthetic surrogate molecules both to probe basic biochemical questions and to expand upon the repertoire of substrates provided by nature. Using the primary literature, we will cover topics including non-natural amino acids, novel nucleotides and base pairs, peptidomimetics, reactive sugar and lipid analogs and activity-based probes of catalytic enzymes.
