Computational Protein Design
Class Time and Place
Lectures: Tuesday and Thursday, 11:00 - 12:20 pm
Labs: Fridays 11:30-2:30pm
Location: BIOE N140
Office: Foege N310B
Labs will be held weekly in BIOE N140, the Bioengineering Advanced Computer Lab. Weeks 1-5 will be spent working on 5 1-week labs, each of which will help familiarize you with computational biology tools. Each lab will be due at the beginning of lab the following week. Weeks 6-10 will be spent working on a project which will depend on which class the student is enrolled in. Week 10 will be presentations.
488 Students: The final 5 weeks of lab will be a design lab that incorporates the tools from the first set of labs but is more self directed. You will have 5 weeks to complete the project and prepare a final paper in journal format. There will be no presentation, but you are expected to attend your classmates' presentations.
588 Students: The final 5 weeks of lab will be spent working on a project of your design. You come up with the topic, research it and make sure it is feasible. The topic needs to be approved by the instructor. You will have 5 weeks to work on the project and prepare a final paper in journal format and presentation describing your project and the results. During the final week of class you will be spent presenting your findings to your classmates.
