Section II: This section is for changes in courses only
- Subject: New course: CHM 3xxxx Bioanalytical Chemistry
- Justification: Analysis of biological samples using analytical and instrumental techniques has become critically important to understand chemical activities in biological systems, drug design, medicine, pharmacy and pharmacology. This course is designed for students majoring in the chemical and biological sciences.
CHM 3XXXX: Bioanalytical Chemistry (Class 2, Lab 3, Cr. 3) Principles and applications of various analytical instruments as applied to biological molecules, including spectroscopy, chromatography and immunoassay, will be discussed. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of biological molecules such as peptides, proteins and toxins will be performed using analytical instruments.
Prerequisites: Undergraduate level CHM 11600 with minimum of C- or consent of instructor
Course Objectives / Learning Outcomes
- The students should be able to describe and use the basic principles of spectroscopy (Fluorescence, Atomic absorption, UV/Vis), chromatography (HPLC, GC/MS, GC), immunoassay (ELISA) and Electrochemistry (Cyclic Voltammetry).
- They should be able to determine experimental errors and analyze data collected from the instruments using statistical methods.
- The students also should be able to account for the need of bioanalytical methods on biological science and biochemical projects such as toxicology, metabolism, food science and biological samples such as proteins and peptides.
- Impact on Students: The new course is an elective course for students majoring in the chemical and biological sciences and may be used to fulfill the degree requirements for both the chemistry major and minor.
- Impact on University Resources: NA
- Impact on other Academic Units: NA
