|BIOL 407L - CELL & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LAB|
This course consists of a lecture and a lab, in which you will acquire the current state of knowledge about cells and their biology at molecular level. The concept learning process will be aided with many interesting experiments. lt 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. Subjects to be covered include: the biology of macromolecules that 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 cellular structure and function will be presented whenever possible. In addition, Bioinformatics, Genomics, and Proteomics approaches which utilize
computer science tools to study molecular biology, will also be introduced.
Course Goals: To complete a programmed series of laboratory exercises in one semester that will teach you valuable skills and techniques in cell and molecular biology and will complement lecture part of the course. Class will be divided into a number of small research teams that will cooperate in reaching common goals in the laboratory Students should work with one lab partner unless otherwise instructed.
