BIOL_SCI 315-CN : Advanced Cell Biology


In this course, students will gain an understanding of important topics in cell biology. We will discuss membrane structure and dynamics, cell signaling, cytoskeletal dynamics, cell division cycle, organelle structure and function, regulation of gene expression and cell-cell communication. A focus of the course will also be on understanding how experiments are designed and conducted. Students will gain experience with critical reading of primary scientific literature, learn the history of major discoveries in cell biology, and will be exposed to recent breakthroughs in modern cell biology and cell biology techniques. Evaluation will include class participation, quizzes, a final exam, a presentation, and homework sets. Prerequisite: BIOL SCI 202 (or 210-C or 216 or 219).
