Biochemistry 729-006, Atoms to Molecules 

Integrated Program in Biochemistry Graduate Program 

This course is required for first semester IPiB graduate students. Topics covered include protein structure and folding, protein dynamics, biological catalysis, membrane structure and assembly, nucleic acid structure and folding, and bioenergetics. Each topic includes discussion of the primary literature, hypothesis generation, experimental design, data analysis and interpretation underlying the facts in the textbook. The goal is to help students transition from undergraduate consumers of knowledge to graduate students and future independent scientists who will discover and add new knowledge.

Biochemistry 801, Biochemical Applications of NMR

Integrated Program in Biochemistry Graduate Program 

Katie teaches the solid-state NMR, slow-timescale dynamics and membrane protein portions of this course.

Biochemistry Communications (Coming Fall 2019)

Integrated Program in Biochemistry Graduate Program 

This course is designed to introduce students to written and visual communication of biochemical research, both to other scientists and to general audiences. It will include how to recognize and adapt work to different audiences; how to construct a scientific argument and the different strategies used for research reports, reviews; and proposals; and how to create figures and posters that clearly convey scientific data and concepts. It will also introduce students to the peer review process and revision of scientific writing. This course has an intensive writing component, requiring students to produce multiple written and visual documents on the topic of their thesis research. It is required of 2nd year IPiB students.
