Physico-chemical principles governing structures of biological macromolecules. Topics include energetics and kinetics of biochemical processes, including binding, catalysis, diffusion/transport, and folding/unfolding; behavior of macromolecules in aqueous medium; and application of spectroscopic methods in biochemistry.

Basic ethics of scientific research. Students will learn how to maintain integrity in scientific research through introduction to principles critical not only for their graduate research, but also for their scientific career.

Using relevant resources to search the scientific literature and to write scientific papers and proposals. Practice in these skills essential for PhD candidates is provided so they can carry out their research, write their dissertations and manuscripts for publication, write research proposals, and more importantly, are prepared to become independent researchers.
