Cell Biology (BIO4131.01)

Amie McClellan

The cell is the fundamental organizational unit of all living organisms on Earth. In this class we will investigate cell structure and function, learn about DNA replication and transcription, find out how proteins are synthesized, folded, localized, and regulated, ultimately coming to understand how interfering with cell biological processes can result in disease. In the lab, students will gain experience with tools and methodologies pertinent to cell biology concepts, as well as techniques used in research.


Learning Outcomes:
solid foundational knowledge of cell structure, function, and processes

molecular and cell biology literacy

ability to use synthesize knowledge of cell biology to address novel scenarios

prepared for higher level work in science
