Integrating Bio-Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry into an Undergraduate Biochemistry Laboratory
Erasmus, Daniel J.; Brewer, Sharon E.; Cinel, Bruno
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v43 n2 p121-125 Mar-Apr 2015
Undergraduate laboratories expose students to a wide variety of topics and techniques in a limited amount of time. This can be a challenge and lead to less exposure to concepts and activities in bio-inorganic chemistry and analytical chemistry that are closely-related to biochemistry. To address this, we incorporated a new iron determination by atomic absorption spectroscopy exercise as part of a five-week long laboratory-based project on the purification of myoglobin from beef. Students were required to prepare samples for chemical analysis, operate an atomic absorption spectrophotometer, critically evaluate their iron data, and integrate these data into a study of myoglobin.
