Introduction To Biotechniques
This laboratory course is an introduction to the fundamental practices of protein biochemistry as an introduction to a biotechnology laboratory. Laboratory exercises focus on the isolation and biochemical/ immunological analysis of proteins. Techniques include buffer and solution preparation, colourimetric protein assays, dialysis, membrane filtration, column chromatography, electrophoresis, immunoblot analysis and enzyme assays. A ?hands-on? approach and the development of practical laboratory skills and time management skills are emphasized. Biochemistry (BIC 373) is a co-requisite lecture course for this subject; the theory behind the biotechniques examined will be discussed both in the lab (BIT 373) and in the lecture (BIC373) component.
One credit towards the BTR(C) program.
