PHRG 5240 - Assay Technologies (3)

Prerequisites: Molecular or Cell Biology, Biochemistry and lab or with the consent of the instructor. This course will explore standard and cutting-edge assay technologies used for measuring biochemical and cellular properties. For biochemical assays, the topics will include radioactive and non-radioactive methods to assay enzyme activity, protein-protein interactions, and quantitative detection of biomolecules. For cell-based assays, the topics covered will include methods to measure proliferation, cytotoxicity, gene transcription, motility, signal transduction, cell compartment localization, and receptor activation. Original research journal articles will be used as case studies in assay development and employment of modern assay technology.
