Good Links to General Biochemical Engineering Information

A Term Project by: Neil Davidson & Alvin Raetzsch

Here are some very useful tools found on the WWW. They can be used in many of the tutorials in your Biochem educational material.

  • Principles of Protein Structure

    This link is a course on-line taught at Birkbeck College in London. It goes into in-depth coverage on protiens. The main topics covered are as follows:
  • Overview of Protein Synthesis

  • Primary Structure

  • Protein Geometry

  • Overview of Molecular Forces

  • Secondary Structure

  • Super-Secondary Structure

  • Tertiary Structure

  • Protein Folds

  • Quaternary Structure

  • Protein Interactions


    This is the hahnemann site, and it has some good stuff, but there is so much. A few good topics in Medical Biochemistry:
  • Heme and Iron Metabolism (text sound and graphics)
  • Macromolecules (text only)
  • Membranes (text and two animations only)
  • Nucleic Acids (text only)
  • Purines and Pyrimidines (text, sound and graphics).

    There is also a directory with some animated graphics such as:

  • Bioenergetics
  • Enzymology
  • Heme Metabolism
  • Lipid Metabolism
  • Membrane Phenomena
  • Metabolic Interrelationships
  • Physiological pH Regulation
  • Structures
    You do, however, need quicktime to view them, and they have a link to download quicktime for window, mac, or x system


    This a Great page to search for different pages in the users field of interest. All Biological sciences are included.

    Do it yourself glycolysis tutorial

    This is an excellant pictoral/tutorial on glycolysis.

    A valveless pump

    An interesting concept and an additional pump to those given on the course outline.

    Various topics from the University of Michigan

    Topics including:
  • Receptors
  • Absorption Seperation
  • Biokenetics

    Good models of the building blocks of RNA and DNA

    A very basic view of the A, C, G, T and U molecules that make up RNA and DNA.

    The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is an archive of experimentally determined three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. The site also contain atomic coordinates, bibliographic citations, primary and secondary structure information, as well as crystallographic structure factors and NMR experimental data.
