|BIOL 406 - CELL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY: LECTURE AND LAB|
This course consists of lecture and lab in which students will acquire the current state of knowledge about the cells and their biology at molecular level. The concept learning process will be aided with many interesting experiments. It is a challenging course for the students who are new to this field. However, the overwhelming inventiveness and the beauty of construction of biological systems will intrigue you and reward your efforts to understand the exciting story of Cell and Molecular Biology. The structure and function of cells will be discussed in relation to important cellular processes. Concepts to be covered include: the biology of macromolecules that the cells are made of (review), the technology for probing cell structure and function, membrane and organelle structure and function, topics on regulation of gene expression, signal transduction, cell division, cancer, and apoptosis. The experimental approaches that have lead to the current knowledge of celular structure and function will be presented whenever possible. In addition, Bioinformatics, Genomics, and Proteomics which utilize computer science tools to study molecular biology, will also be introduced. Lab Fee.
