Outcomes
  • Students will acquire knowledge that will enable them to answer questions such as: What are the chemical structural, and dynamic properties of the 20 amino acids?
  • What are the fundamental forces that govern the structure and functions of proteins?
  • What structural features are common in proteins?
  • How can we determine the probability that two or more different proteins evolved from a common ancestor?
  • What methods are available to predict the structure and dynamics of proteins?
  • How can protein structures be determined at the atomic level?
  • How can the atomic details of a protein structure be visualized on my own computer?
  • How do proteins accomplish the folding process?
  • Once folded, what do proteins do?
