Module code:BIOC2002 (Add to my personalised list)
Title:Essential Protein Structure and Function
Credit value:.5
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser (provisional):Prof S J Perkins
Organiser's location:Darwin Building
Available for students in Year(s):2
Module prerequisites:Biochemistry 1001, 1008 or 1009 
Module outline:This half course unit is designed for students whose principal discipline is not Biochemistry, but whose interests lie in the broad area of biological sciences. It is primarily a lecture course with tutorials and a dry lab practical on protein structures. The course covers key topics in protein structure and function. The depth of understanding of these topics that the students will attain will equip the student for final year studies in non-molecular based fields of biological science such as Anthropology, Psychology, and Physiology, or in some cases Human Sciences. 
Module aims:Building on the basic knowledge of biochemistry established in BIOC1001 or BIOC1002, and the BIOC2003 introduction in Term 1 to Essential Molecular Biology, students will study major aspects of modern protein structure and function: 
Module objectives:The course objectives will cover four topics on: 5) Protein structure and bioinformatics 6) Structures of antibodies, haemoglobin, collagen and membrane proteins 7) Enzymology and Endocrinology 8) Transporters
