 Biochemistry Courses

Medicine, agriculture and nutrition have all vastly improved over the last decade in large part by a rapidly growing understanding of biochemistry.  Future advances in the life sciences will depend in part on rigorous training of students so they are conversant in  biochemistry.  Such knowledge will no doubt lead to even greater gains in our ability to understand nature and control our destiny.

     Molecular Biochemistry (Chem 3310)

Biological Chemistry of Plants

Research activities focus on: [i] characterizing signaling mechanisms that operate in plant-microbe interactions and [ii] chemically characterize natural products from plant and marine sources with biological activity within a medical context. The lab fosters the training of undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers. Experimental approaches include techniques in analytical and organic chemistry as well as molecular and microbiology. Research projects that are ongoing are summarized below.
