Course Objectives "The course aims : - To enable students to Describe rational and combinatorial methods of protein engineering - To train students to critically analyse data and conclusions from the primary literature - To train students to formulate an original research plan for a specific protein engineering study and describe the advantages and limitations of the proposed research - To enable students to converse at an advanced level about current key topics of investigation in the field of protein engineering"
Textbook Protein Structure and Function 1e, Whiteford D -2008 Wiley.
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Modify a protein purification scheme to a specific application.
  2. Understand the different systems of recombinant protein expression with advantages and disadvantages of each one.
  3. Comprehend the difficulties in working with proteomics compare to genomics.
  4. Gain thinking and analysis skills in protein biochemistry, Protein 3-D Structure and Protein folding.
  5. Communication skills well be developed by encouraging student participating in discussion and asking questions.
Teaching Methods Class discussions with examples. Active tutorial sessions for engaged learning and continuous feedback on progress. Team assigments. Team projects that involve real data, computer analysis, summary, interpretation and reporting.
