BIIN 351 - PROTEIN STRUCTURE AND MODELING
Proteins are responsible for doing most of the biological work in our cells. The work performed by these molecules depends critically upon the three dimensional arrangement of their atoms. The structure of proteins is an excellent illustration of how Nature uses form to fit function. This course will explore the nature and the stability of protein molecules as well as the basis for predicting the structure of protein models based upon their amino acid sequence and composition. Topics covered in the course will include Ramachandran plots, dominant forces in protein folding, secondary/tertiary/ quaternary structure, protein folds and classification, sequence alignments, structural and functional motifs, membrane proteins, experimental structural biology methods, protein modeling including ab initio calculations, homology modeling, threading, and molecular evolution. Students will also learn how to build, to graphically display and to evaluate protein models and to make functional predictions about proteins based on structural analysis of the models they build.
