Course Description

Introduction of commonly used methods for separation of biological molecules for both analytical and preparative applications. This laboratory-intensive course will cover the principles of and practice in filtration, differential precipitation, and electrophoretic and chromatographic techniques. Prerequisites: BIT 109 or BIT 110; and any of the following: BIT 155, BI 112, CH 100 or higher; or instructor permission.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Carry out separations of biological molecules using methods based on filtration, differential precipitation, electrophoresis and chromatography.

Record and report the procedures, results and interpretation of these separations in standard forms of scientific communication (laboratory notebook, written report, casual and/or formal oral communication)

Use knowledge of bioseparation principles to troubleshoot unexpected results and suggest solutions

Work effectively as part of a team in the execution and reporting of bioseparation procedures.
