Course Description: This course will introduce students to bioconjugation strategies using examples from the primary literature. The ability to selectively form covalent bonds to and between biomolecules is vital for many applications in both basic and applied sciences. We will discuss the many flavors of bioconjugation, including chemoenzymatic, bioorthogonal, and selectively activatable chemistries. Using literature examples, we will discuss the how bioconjugation is used as a tool across diverse disciplines including protein chemistry, cell biology, and biomaterials.
