Lecture: Organic chemistry
Students will learn about the chemical properties and major ecological roles of secondary metabolites, how to investigate the secondary metabolites of marine invertebrates and algae, how to analyze secondary metabolite profiles, how to isolates compounds of interest and how to conduct various bioassays to assess potential ecological roles of crude extracts and potentially isolated compounds. Students will also learn how to statistically evaluate their results.
“Chemical Ecology”: The course consists of lectures, followed by laboratory experiments. Students will research about various topics in marine chemical ecology. Laboratory work will include production of extracts from various invertebrates and algae. Extracts will be tested in various feeding assays to assess the chemical properties of extracts. Extracts will also be tested for antimicrobial activity with environmental strains. This includes the culture of test bacteria and antimicrobial assays. Final evaluation will be a laboratory report about the experiments. This will include statistical analysis of their experiments and discussion of their results in the framework of the lectures and seminars presented during the course.
