Topics in Biomedical Sciences

Topics in Biomedical Sciences

The class "Topics in Biomedical Sciences" is a novel teaching/learning method based on CSDL (Center for Self-Directed Learning). Unlike general classes, students are supposed to acquire necessary knowledge and information themselves. Through connecting internet (http://hst.streamuk. com/bsr17/bsr17.htm), students are able to improve the ability to understand how to study voluntarily and utilize various contents. This class has goals to overcome the former pattern to understand collective information in a short time, thereby contribute to catch recent information that has been rapidly increased.

Functional Biochemistry of Protein

The roles of proteins that have various functions within cells can be classified according to the primary sequence of amino acids. Thus, proteins have a domain, which is the specific set of sequences of amino acids, and the sequences and structures of specific domains vary depending on the independent function of protein such as signal transduction factors, transcription factors, and receptors. This course features lectures, presentations, and discussions based on the types and structures of various domains that are currently known and related to protein functions.
