In this topic students will learn about the functions of cellular proteins and contemporary approaches that are used for the study and characterisation of proteins. Students will review the process of protein translation, and then examine the post-translational events that affect the structure, function and cellular location of proteins. Traditional techniques for the study of proteins such as protein purification, electrophoresis, Western-blotting and enzyme kinetics will be contrasted with more contemporary techniques such as mass spectrometry techniques for identification of entire proteomes and computer based approaches for evaluating protein structure and function. Students will also have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in practical laboratory exercises.
