MT 430 introduces the theory and practice of biochemistry through laboratory experiments designed to provide the student experience with common analytical techniques used to isolate, quantify, and characterize biomolecules. There is significant emphasis on chromatographic instrumentation. Laboratory practices include multiple bioseparation techniques including thin layer, classical column, high performance liquid, and gas chromatography as well as electrophoretic separation. The laboratory also employs automated and semi-automated chemistry systems. Registration in MT 430 is limited to accepted majors of BTE only.
