BIOL 211/2230 - Molecular and Cell Biology (3 cr. + 1 cr. lab)

   and    or co-requisite.

The course is designed to provide a detailed understanding of the structure and function of the cell. This includes mechanisms of DNA replication and repair in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms and regulation of transcription and translational machinery. Protein sorting into functional structural proteins will be addressed with emphasis of post-translational protein modifications. Mechanisms of cell-cell signaling and their role in regulating genomic integrity and cell cycle regulation will be covered in details and consequences of abnormalities in these mechanisms will be discussed. Laboratories include the identification of basic cell structures, laboratory techniques in DNA and protein isolation, characterization and computational tools in molecular biology.
