The course is structured into three components. The first component of the course focuses on molecular biology techniques, in the second component you will learn protein purification techniques, and in the last component you will be introduced to methods for characterization of proteins. Good understanding of techniques covered in Chem 110L is assumed. The course is organized to mimic real-life research and incorporates writing a grant proposal and giving a final presentation. The 1-hour weekly lecture series focuses on instrumental techniques and explains the methods used in the following lab.

2 General Information and Expectations of Students: Chem 125L is a laboratory course, in which the main portion of your grade is earned by planning and performing experiments, documenting your work in your lab notebook, and answering questions in the experimental handout. There is a quiz at the beginning of each experiment, one exam near the end of the course, and an oral research presentation at the end of the course. As with any laboratory course, standard lab fee is collected from students who stay beyond the standard drop deadline. Because most of the experiments were developed here at UCSB recently, you do not have to purchase a lab manual for this course. The lab manual will be available for download from the course website at http://www.chem.ucsb.edu/~kalju/chem125L . At the beginning of the course, you will receive a “Theory Manual” that provides a background on techniques and the first part of the “Operations Manual for Component 1” that contains the procedures for first experiments. After completing your research proposal, you will receive the rest of the “Operations Manual”.
