S285: Macromolecular Architecture: How Chemical Structures Create Biological Functions in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
This course focuses on a field of science called structural biology, which is concerned, among other things, with the structure and function of biological macromolecules. The course will walk students of all levels through classical examples of biochemical form and function, ending with what scientists today explore in the field and the tools they utilize for the job.
