Courses

A study of the structure & processes of living cells, including prokaryotes (archaea, eubacteria) and emphasizing eukaryotes (plants, animals, fungi, etc.). Area of focus include cell anatomy, structure and function of biological macromolecules, processes of the gene (replication, transcription, translation), endomembrane trafficking, cytoskeletal structure and function, regulation and mechanics of cell division, and cell signaling.

A laboratory course emphasizing current approaches to studying cellular function and genetic inheritance.
