COURSE OVERVIEW: The course objective is to introduce and develop physical concepts for the biochemist by using theories of physical chemistry (rather than pure mathematical formulations) to exemplify biochemically relevant phenomena. The desired outcome is for students to gain a basic understanding of how solution dynamics, hydrodynamics, and spectroscopy….etc can be applied to biochemical problems.
ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION: Attendance at all of the class sessions is mandatory unless you are sick.
HOMEWORK: Questions and problems will be given as homework regularly: they are designed to encourage your regular reading of the material and completing them will help you prepare for the exams.
PERFORMANCE EVALUATON: Grades will be determined by two 50 minute in-class exams, as well as by class participation and three hours final exam. The questions on exams will consist of short answers, multiple-choices, correct statements and assay questions. Questions about exam scores or requests for re-grading must be submitted in writing to the course faculty within one week after any given exam is returned.

MAKE UP EXAMS: You should contact the fuculty either before the exam or in a timeframe after the exam that is consistent with the reason for missing the exam. Makeup exam is at the discretion of the faculty, and may include assay format 30-75%.
The goals of this course are to answer these questions; how you design a research work, how the bio-kits in research and clinical labs work and how the equipments is built in.
How to design a research experiment:
Step 1: Identify an important research problem.
Step 2: Clearly define the research objective.
Step 3: Design a study that can address the problem and meet the objective.
Step 4: Select an appropriate analytical method and suitable equipments.
Step 5: Acquisition analysis of samples
Step 6: Data analysis and classifier development
Step 7: Validation and ongoing evaluation of your experiment
Step 8: Publication, patents or new routine testing
