Cell and Molecular Biology
College of Sciences
This is an introductory course in Cell and Molecular Biology. We will learn a lot about the molecules that make up our cells, especially the "macromolecules" such as protein, DNA and RNA. We will spend a lot of time on how these molecules are synthesized (put together), and how they work. Topics covered in this course are very important for further work in biology, especially for people who are planning careers in the biomedical sciences. The course also lays the groundwork for understanding important social issues in biology, including genetic engineering, genetic testing, and personalized medicine.
Older syllabi may not be applicable to the current semester. Be sure to verify content with the instructor.
