Experimental Biochemistry

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam


For undergraduate students in the discipline of biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry and other related biological sciences, the biochemistry laboratory course has become an integral part. It is necessary for students to acquire skills in working with biomolecules in the laboratory. This course is designed to train students with the basic biochemistry laboratory techniques and also introduce some higher level concepts that will prepare them for future research and development projects. The course outline is given for each week. We will introduce each topic and give an overview of the topic and underlying theory. This will be followed by actual demonstration of the experiment. Weekly assignments will be provided and graded.
