BI 488 Lipid Research in Health and Disease (Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: BI204 and BI435 (or CH561)
Lab fee required.
This advanced project-based laboratory course will focus on the biochemistry of lipids in normal and diseased mammalian cells and tissues. Laboratory techniques will involve isolation, purification, and quantification of lipids using chromatography procedures (column, thin-layer, and gas-liquid chromatography). Students will work in research teams on projects that are intended to generate publication-quality data. Ideal for students interested in gaining practical experience in biochemical research.
