Zaida Contact Office: Administration Building B304 Office Phone: 2697 (ext.) mobile: 059-7193-442 Email: or Office Hours Sat &amp; Mon: 11-13 Sun, Tue, Wed: 10-11 </li> <li> Slide 3 </li> <li> Course Description This course is designed for the students with a biochemistry major, and is intended to focus on some carefully selected important protocols, and techniques used widely in biochemistry lab. </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> Course Objectives 1. This course aims to provide the students with an opportunity to develop their qualitative analytical skills. 2. It is expected that students upon completion of this course, will have a sound knowledge on advanced protocols applied widely in biochemistry. 3. Students will get adapted to team work. 4. Helping students developing their communication skills. 5. At the end of this course students will be familiar with how to prepare reports on lab activities. 6. Encouraging students to think critically and know how to solve problems. </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> Course Topics Protein Dialysis, Determination of protein pI, Protein salting out, Enzyme kinetics, Aerobic respiration, anaerobic respiration, Bradford test, Separation of blood serum lipids by means of Thin Layer Chromatography, Color Reactions of Plant Pigments, and SDS-PAGE. </li> <li> Slide 6 </li> <li> Type of Course Teaching This is a practice course that requires: - short lectures, - in-lab practical experiments, and - Participation in different electronic learning tools. </li> <li> Slide 7 </li> <li> Prerequisites Practical Analytical Chemistry CHEM2110 Biochemistry I BIOCA2301 Biochemistry II BIOCB2301 Practical Biochemistry I BIOCA2101 Practical Biochemistry II BIOCB2101 </li> <li> Slide 8 </li> <li> Textbook(s) A.

Reading the lab manual before the lab activity day 2. Answering the pre-lab questions during lab session, 3. Quizzes (3) 4. Writing Lab reports 5. Participation in the actual lab work. 6. Participation in the discussion with classmates through the electronic learning tools. </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> Course Policy - Attending all lab sessions is a mandatory. - Active engagement in different elearning tools (online quizzes, wikis, forum, chat, electronic reports). - Zero tolerance for not following given instructions during lab sessions. - Wearing the lab coat as soon as you step in the lab. - Acting responsibly during the entire lab session. - Team work is a must, including communication with group partners. - Giving up reports from the previous lab session must be electronically only. - No make ups are allowed. </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> Lab Safety/Health It is my job to keep my dear students safe, and protect them against any type of danger that might be anticipated during the lab sessions due to the different kinds of hazardous materials that might be necessary for some experiments. However students are expected to comply completely with labs safety rules, and will be held responsible for their own safety once they dont follow instructors rules. </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> Grading Reading the lab manual before the lab session and answering the pre-lab questions during lab session. 5 Quizzes (3)15 Lab reports (electronically submitted)10 Active engagement in the actual lab work20 Being active in different elearning tools10 Final exam40 Total Grade100 </li> <li> Slide 14 </li> <li> Following up with the Course - Students may reach the course materials through moodle system anytime. In case of anticipating any type of problems, student may contact me at my mobile or via email anytime. How to use moodle system - Students may go through the moodle system using guide found on the website of electronic learning, under educational resources for students. - Students may also ask for assistance from the electronic learning center found in the IT building I400, phone 1573. </li> </ul>
