PE #8 DNA Structure, Biotechnology, and its use in Conservation
... I can summarize the pairing rules for nitrogen bases within the structure of DNA.
I can recognize that sections of DNA that code for proteins are genes.
I can identify that the sections of DNA used for DNA profiling are not made up of genes, but
nucleotides between the genes.

Biochemistry: the study of the chemical reactions of life
... Most membranes in cells are semipermeable, allowing some things to
easily pass through and blocking other things. Sometimes the cell can
control this process and other times it cannot. The energy involved in this
process has both chemical and physical aspects and is far from
completely understood. O ...

... Each of these scales in the hierarchy is
amendable to modeling.
Not surprisingly, all of the usual multiscale
challenges are presence with a vengeance
because often different levels in the hierarchy
cannot be isolated.
... The shape of a protein molecule is determined by the bonds which can form between neighbouring
amino acids. These may include hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds, van der Waals forces and covalent
bonds. These primary structures can further twist and intermingle to give secondary structures

Biomolecular engineering is the application of engineering principles and practices to the purposeful manipulation of molecules of biological origin. Biomolecular engineers integrate knowledge of biological processes with the core knowledge of chemical engineering in order to focus on molecular level solutions to issues and problems in the life sciences related to the environment, agriculture, energy, industry, food production, biotechnology and medicine. Biomolecular engineers purposefully manipulate carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids and lipids within the framework of the relation between their structure (see: nucleic acid structure, carbohydrate chemistry, protein structure,), function (see: protein function) and properties and in relation to applicability to such areas as environmental remediation, crop and live stock production, biofuel cells and biomolecular diagnostics. Fundamental attention is given to the thermodynamics and kinetics of molecular recognition in enzymes, antibodies, DNA hybridization, bio-conjugation/bio-immobilization and bioseparations. Attention is also given to the rudiments of engineered biomolecules in cell signaling, cell growth kinetics, biochemical pathway engineering and bioreactor engineering. Biomolecular engineers are leading the major shift towards understanding and controlling the molecular mechanisms that define life as we know it.
