BIOL 355 - Molecular Biol of the Cell


Credit(s): 4
3 hours lab, 3 hours lecture, 6 hours contact
Prerequisite(s): CHEM 160 /CHEM 160A , CHEM 161 /CHEM 161A  and BIOL 360 .
The study of how cells function with an emphasis on the ultra-structural aspects of cells and their underlying macromolecular structures and mechanisms of cellular processes. Emphasis is on nucleic acids as informational molecules and proteins as catalytic and regulatory molecules and molecular machines. Topics include genomics, proteomics, nucleic acid structure, chemistry, and metabolism, recombinant DNA technology and genetic engineering, membrane structure, membrane transport, protein sorting, vesicular traffic and cellular communication. Experimental techniques in cell culture, immunology, microscopy and biochemistry are emphasized in the lecture, creating a foundation for laboratory experiments in molecular and cell biology. This course is the core course for students in the general biology track and the clinical laboratory science program.

This is the Core Course for the Biology, General Biology Track, B.S. , Biology, Biomedical Sciences Track, B.S.  and the Biology, Biology Education Track, B.S.
