Description

MCDB 428 is designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the biology of eukaryotes at the cellular and molecular level.

The following topics will be included:

  • methods for handling relevant organisms;
  • membrane structure, function, and subcellular organization;
  • protein folding, targeting, and post-translational modification;
  • intracellular membrane trafficking, secretion, and endocytosis;
  • signaling and cell-cell communications;
  • cytoskeleton and cell motility;
  • cell cycle and its regulation;
  • apoptosis and cancer.

Course Requirements:

Students will be expected to integrate the scientific data presented in class as well as to read and interpret basic research drawn from the current scientific literature. Grades will be based on four exams and the discussion section.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. The information is presented at a level that requires students to integrate information from their other biology, chemistry, and biochemistry courses.
