BIOT 604/6204 - Model Systems in Cancer Research (2 cr. + 1 cr. lab)

BIOT 5203  or BIOT 5204  .

This course exposes graduate students to a powerful tool, cell lines, for research. Cell lines are commonly used in many fields of laboratory research mainly as in vitro models in cancer research. Topics covered in class include but not limited to the biology, epidemiology, and molecular mechanisms of cancer including genetic variants, role of microRNA and epigenetic gene deregulation. Students, throughout the semester, will develop an understanding of the molecular events underlying the development of human cancer through examining primary literature related to the current knowledge of cancer biology. The course includes a laboratory component exploring a range of techniques used in the study of cancer biology.
