CHEM 6665 - Combinatorial Chemistry

Prerequisites: CHEM 6650 CHEM 6606 . Students are expected to have a strong undergraduate background in organic chemistry. Combinatorial chemistry is a relatively new approach for producing large collections of compounds for analysis. This course will cover the fundamental techniques and ideas for generating diverse libraries of compounds. Students will learn and utilize several computer packages to design, analyze, and evaluate combinatorial libraries. Examples will be drawn principally from drug design since combinatorial chemistry has had a major impact on the development of new pharmacological agents. Students anticipating careers in pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries will find this course of value. 3 credits.
