Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course gives a general knowledge of methods and technologies for the analysis of biomolecules. The main focus is on analysis of proteins, but also analysis of other biomolecules such as DNA and RNA is included. Basic experimental design will also be included. The course contains both theoretical and practical parts.
The following analytical methods will be treated in the course:

  • Electrophoresis
  • Spectrophotometric methods
  • Immunochemical and immunotechnological methods
  • Mass spectroscopy
  • Microscopy
  • Structural biology methods
  • Biosensor methods
  • Radiochemical methods
  • Flow cytometry
  • Analytical chromatography

Intended learning outcomes *

On completion of the course, the students should be able to:

  • Account for common analytical methods for biomolecules
  • Apply methods for analysis of biomolecules
  • Choose and combine appropriate methods and technologies for given issues
  • Discuss possibilities and limitations with the technologies that are treated in the course critically
  • Report orally and in writing on a second cycle level within the subject
  • Review and give constructive feedback on oral and written reports within the subject
  • Design experiments
