Description

Fundamentals of Cell Biology - This course will introduce you to essential principles that guide our current understanding of cellular structure, function, and behavior. We will emphasize central concepts in Cell Biology including: cellular components and architecture, membrane structure, protein targeting and translocation, membrane trafficking, cell signaling, cytoskeleton, cell cycle, cell-matrix and cell-cell adhesion, and cancer.

Course Requirements:

Students will be assessed based on: iClicker participation in lectures, performance on four exams, and performance in the discussion section. The exams will focus on the material covered in lectures and may also include material covered in discussion sections. The exams are non-cumulative. Each exam (including the final exam) will focus on the concepts covered in the lectures preceding that exam; however, they may draw on fundamental materials from earlier exams. Additionally, material covered in discussion sections may be on the exams.

Intended Audience:

Sophomore and Junior MCDB or other biological science majors.

Class Format:

There are three hours of lecture each week and one 90-minute discussion session, directed by Graduate Student Instructors. The discussion sections will clarify, expand upon, and deepen your understanding of the information presented in lectures
