Recombinant DNA Techniques
(Cross-listed as CHBE 0163 and BIO 0163.) This lecture and laboratory course is designed to familiarize the student with methods employed to produce recombinant products. The lectures cover fundamental aspects of the recombinant DNA methodologies used in the laboratory as well as some commercial applications of the techniques. The laboratory provides hands-on experience with the key skills used in genetic engineering including DNA isolation, restriction enzyme mapping, cloning and selection, protein expression, gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, DNA sequencing, and related techniques. Recommendations: CHEM 0001 Fundamental Chemistry, BIO 0013 Cells & Organisms, or a similar course, or permission of instructor.
