Introduction to Cell Biology (with Lab) (BIO4114.01)

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, and ultimately come 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:
• foundational knowledge of cell structure, function, and processes

• molecular and cell biology literacy

• ability to synthesize cell biology knowledge and address novel scenarios

• preparedness for higher level work in molecular/cell biology and biochemistry
