This module delves into the structure-function relationship
of proteins and the forces influencing the regulatory,
structural, protective, and transport roles of proteins. In
addition, the principles and application of biochemical
techniques as well as the expression, separation,
identification and purification of proteins will be explored.
The module integrates biochemistry and molecular cell
biology using bioinformatics and analytical instruments
as tools to facilitate this large-scale, complex study of
proteins. The practical component of the module, which
allows students to apply the concepts covered in the
theory component, introduces students to materials,
equipment and laboratory techniques that are frequently
used in protein studies such as protein extraction, SDS
PAGE, Western blot, and columns chromatography.
