Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Introduction to insect and mammalian cell expression systems, their advantages and disadvantages. Advanced techniques in DNA cloning, cell transformation, and optimization of protein expression. Selection, archiving and characterization of production line. The lab portion of the course provides students with practical experience in DNA cloning and protein expression techniques in insect and mammalian cell expression systems. Credit not given for both.

we are adding BEC 441; this is a cross listed course and the original paperwork 3 yrs ago some how got lost for the BEC 441 side of this

Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students should be able to:



  • explain fundamentals of insect and mammalian cell expression systems;

  • identify advanced DNA manipulation processes used in the biomanufacturing industry;

  • demonstrate laboratory and molecular biology techniques using insect and mammalian cell expression systems; and

  • evaluate results of laboratory experiments as well as identify the steps involved in creation and selection of a production line.


In addition to the above learning outcomes, graduate students will be able to:



  • identify possible solutions for problems faced during experimental procedures; and


create comprehensive experimental designs such as a grant proposal to produce a protein of interest in insect and mammalian expression systems.

mlnosbis (Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:28:36 GMT): Rollback: Is this a course revision, or are you populating with current course data? I do not see how this is different from previous course action. Also, you've entered information in incorrect fields. Please list Student Learning Outcomes in that field, and Topical/Course Outline in that field.
