Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. predict how physical and chemical environments influence protein structure and function.
2. describe how the amino acid sequence influences a protein’s final native conformation.
3. identify the appropriate analytical techniques and approaches to define and characterize the native conformation of protein.
4. calculate the kinetic parameters governing the catalytic properties of an enzyme.
5. articulate an understanding of how allosteric and post-translational modifications regulated enzyme activity.
