BIO 427: Molecular Biology
Prerequisite: BIO 210 or 214 or 215 and BIO 234 or 235
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
The methods and research that support models of cell function at the molecular level. This three credit lecture course will present current advanced research methods in molecular biology - those used to study the expression and regulation of genes, and the laboratory research on the macromolecules involved. Students will read and paraphrase current literature in the field of molecular biology. In addition, graduate students will present two typical reviews of current problems in molecular biology, both as written expositions and as interactive lecture presentations to other class members. Pre- and post-presentation interviews with the instructor are also required.
