Introductory Experiments On Biomolecules And Their Interactions Pdf

By Robert K. Delong and Qiongqiong Zhou

Introductory Experiments on Biomolecules and their Interactions PDF provides a novel approach to teaching biomolecules in the lab. While featuring the requisite fundamentals, it also captures the author’s experience in industry, thus providing unique, up-to-date experiments which take the learning experience one-step further.

The text parallels lectures using a standard biochemistry undergraduate text. Unlike most current lab manuals available in the market which simply emphasize an introduction of techniques, this lab manual provides students with opportunities to demonstrate and prove the knowledge and theories they learn from class.

  • Features quantitative analysis of RNA degradation by RNase
  • Contains problem sets, calculations, and references for each lab fully immersing students in the learning process
  • Includes instruction on how to maintain a lab notebook and write a formal lab report
  • Provides hands-on engagement with the four major types of biomolecules and “real-life and better applied” examples of molecular interactions
