CHEM 272 - Bioanalytical Laboratory
Develop and practice analytical laboratory techniques used in advanced chemistry and biochemistry. Experiments will include statistics and error analysis, UV/vis spectroscopy, protein/DNA quantitation, chemical and biochemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids/bases/buffers, and oxidation/reduction. The course will also focus on computerized data processing techniques, data interpretation and critical analysis, technical writing, and formal presentations. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in CHEM 203 or consent of department. Four hours laboratory each week.
1 semester hour
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Identify chemical and biochemical problems that can be solved by laboratory experiments.
- Apply appropriate laboratory techniques and methods to solve chemical and biochemical problems.
- Use standard analytical chemical and biochemical techniques for measurement of samples.
- Identify and use computer methods for data processing and calculations.
- Use basic statistical methods to assist in analysis and interpretation of laboratory data.
- Use the scientific literature to support or enhance interpretation of experimental results.
- Write a formal laboratory reports and technical reports, including appropriate literature citations in APA and ACS formats.
- Describe the background, analysis, and results of one experiment in a formal oral presentation.
