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.
foundational knowledge of cell structure, function, and processes
molecular and cell biology literacy
ability to synthesize knowledge of cell biology to address novel scenarios
preparedness for higher level work in molecular/cell biology and biochemistry
