BMB 301. Biochemistry Lecture. 3 credits. Three lectures per week. Prerequisites: Chemistry 240 or 342 or equivalent, S
Topics including enzymology; bioenergetics; metabolism and its regulation; nucleic acid metabolism; recombinant DNA technology; structure and function of macromolecules.
BMB 401. Biochemistry of Proteins and Information Flow. 3 credits. Prerequisite: BMB 301, F
This course will build upon the overview of biochemistry and molecular biology as presented in BMB 301. Lectures will emphasize advanced topics in protein structure and function, enzymology, and the expression and transmission of genetic information. An independent project in proteomics or computational biochemistry will be required.
BMB 403. Advanced Biochemistry Laboratory. 2 credits. Prerequisites: BMB 401 (may be taken the same semester) and permission of instructor, F
Students will demonstrate competency in understanding and performing physical and molecular techniques commonly used in biomedical research.
BMB 494. Directed Studies. 1 to 4 credits, repeatable to 12 credits, F, S, SS
A course designed to provide individual students with the opportunity for creative, scholarly, and research activities in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology under the direction of a department faculty member. Open to all students, with consent of the instructor required.
BIMD 500. Cellular and Molecular Foundations of Biomedical Science. 6 credits. Prerequisites: (a) one year of organic chemistry or (b) one semester of organic chemistry and one course in either biochemistry or cell biology or (c) permission of course director.
A series of lectures and discussion groups with emphasis on interrelated themes in basic biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology. Lectures will include current and emerging areas of research, while discussion will center on methods, techniques and expansion of lecture topics. Fall semester.
BIMD 510. Basic Biomedical Statistics. 2 credits. Prerequisites: BIMD 500 or permission of course director.
A series of lectures and demonstrations to provide students with the basic rationale for the use of statistics in the assessment of biomedical data and a selected set of the most common and useful statistical tests.
BIMD 513. Seminars in Biomedical Sciences. 1 credit.
A series of presentations on original research conducted by UND faculty members as well as extramural leaders in the fields of academic and industrial research in the biomedical sciences. Students will participate through assigned reading and writing exercises related to the presentations.
BIMD 516. Responsible Conduct of Research. 1 credit.
A series of lectures and discussion sessions covering topics related to responsible conduct in research. Students will examine a variety of issues including introduction to ethical decision making, the experience of conflict, laboratory practices, data management, reporting of research, conflict of interest, and compliance. Examples and case studies will be drawn primarily from the biomedical sciences.
BMB 514. Current Literature. 1 credit. Prerequisite: BIMD 500 or consent of instructor. S/U grading only, S
Students of the department rotate in leading informal reviews, analyses, and the discussions of research papers selected from current journals in the areas of biochemistry and molecular biology.
BMB 521. Seminar. 1 credit. Prerequisite: BIMD 500 or consent of instructor, S/U grading only, F
Students present topics in biochemistry and molecular biology based on reviews of the current literature. Each presentation is followed by a discussion of the topic by the faculty and students of the department.
BMB 533. Advanced Topics. 1 credit. Prerequisites: BIMD 500; alternatively, Biochemistry 301 or equivalent and permission of instructor, S
The purpose of this course is to provide an in-depth exploration of selected areas of protein structure and function, metabolism, regulation of cell functions, proteomics, recombinant DNA technology, eukaryotic nucleic acid metabolism, and gene expression with the intent of complementing and extending the knowledge base gained in BIMD 500. Extensive independent learning is expected.
BMB 540. Special Topics. 1 to 3 credits. Prerequisite: BIMD 500 or consent of instructor, F, S, SS
Discussion of a topic in biochemistry and/or molecular biology of current interest to faculty and students.
BMB 590. Research. 1 to 12 credits, F, S, SS
The assignments deal with pertinent research problems in various aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology.
BMB 594. Special Problems in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. 1 to 6 credits. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor, F, S, SS
The student in consultation with a faculty member of the department undertakes a laboratory research project.
BMB 595. Readings in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. 1 to 3 credits. Prerequisite: BIMD 500 or consent of instructor, F, S, SS
Selected readings and library research in an area of mutual interest to the student and a faculty member of the department. Conferences and/or written reports are required.
