Biomolecules: Structure, Function and Engineering Applications - 3 credits Prerequisites : CHM 116, CS 156, ENG 106, MA 165 Co-requisites : BIOL 295E, BME205 (LAB) This course reviews the classes of molecules (biomolecules) such as saccharides, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids that form the cellular components of living matter. The aim of the course is to explore the chemistry behind the structure and function of these biological molecules. Hydrogen bonding, hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions along with other weak interactions will be discussed with reference to their importance in biomolecular systems in an engineering context. As a student you will learn about the structure, properties and function of fundamental building blocks of biological systems and their close relation to biomedical engineering, specifically engineering design. An understanding of fundamental concepts is essential when engineering, controlling and manipulating biomedical platforms. Fall 2010
