Course description and aims

This course focuses on instrumental analysis, including fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism, NMR, ESR, microscopy, mass spectrometry, chromatography, electrophoresis, flow cytometry and their data treatment. Theory and practical approaches of these experimental methods are given.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to understand :
1) Spectroscopic technique used in biological experiments
2) Chromatography
3) Electrophoresis
4) Microscopy
5) Data analysis
4) Metal ions analysis
5) Computational biochemistry


Instrumental analysis, Spectroscopy, Microscopy, Chromatography, Flow cytometry

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

At the beginning of each class, Instrumental Analysis in Bioscience is reviewed. At the end of every classes, students' understanding are accessed by exams.
