Interdisciplinary Life Science - PULSe Great research is a matter of choice

Training Group Introductory Courses

(4-7 credits) The TG Introductory courses generally involve two classes of two to four (2-4) credits each. PULSe students must enroll in at least two of these courses in addition to the core courses. One introductory course must be within a student's TG, and the second introductory class must be taken outside of a student's TG. These courses are to be completed by the end of Year 2. Some TGS require more than one introductory course within the group.

  • Biomolecular Structure and Biophysics - For students in this TG, BIOL 59500 must be taken:
    • BIOL 59500 - Methods Measurement Biophysical Chemistry (3 credits) Typically Offered Fall
    • MCMP 51400 Biomolecular Interactions: Theory and Practice Modules 1 and 2 (2-4 credits) Typically Offered Spring
  • Biotechnology - For students in this TG, six credit hours from the courses below must be taken.  Course availability is dependent on enrollments.  For this reason, appropriate courses may be substituted.  Contact the PULSe office and/or the Biotechnology TG Curriculum Committee representative for course advice and approval.
    • ABE 49500/69500 Cell and Molecular Design Principles (3 credits) Typically Offered Spring
    • ABE 56000/BME 52100 Biosensors: Applications and Fundamentals (3 credits) Typically Offered Every Other Fall in Odd Years
