BIO 402 - Cell and Molecular Biology

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 4
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 4

Cell and Molecular Biology studies how life works at the molecular level. The course utilizes a comparative approach to the study of cell biology. Topics include molecular mechanisms of cellular regulation, the life cycle of a cell, and the dynamic role of protein structures in cellular function. Lab explores these topics in model organisms including bacteria, yeast and algae. The history of cell biology research is explored through the discussion of landmark discoveries and their influence on modern molecular biology. Students are expected to become proficient with light microscopy, and complement cellular observation with molecular techniques such as PCR and gel electrophoresis. An introduction to bioinformatics explores the relationship between protein structure and function.

Prerequisite(s): successful completion (CD or higher) of BIO 151  and BIO 152  or BIO 181  and [[
