Protein Biotechnology is a selective topic supporting the postgraduate students who do not have sufficient prerequisite knowledge for the Topic BIOL8005 Protein to Proteome GE. Therefore this topic will teach the students the foundation knowledge and techniques in contemporary protein biochemistry and biotechnology to bridge the gap for students to successfully undertake BIOL8005. In this Topic, the students will learn about protein structure, protein folding, electrophoresis, western-blotting, molecular cloning and manipulation of recombinant DNA, protein expression in E. coli, protein purification, enzymes and enzymatic catalysis, protein-protein interactions, DNA binding, and basic biophysical characterisation of protein structures. This topic will focus on building the knowledge bases of students in order to further learn the functions of cellular proteins and contemporary approaches of protein characterisation.
