Cell and Molecular Biology
May be elected as a departmental concentration program
The curriculum in cellular and molecular biology offers students an integrated program of study and training in the biological and physical sciences. It is a pathway to graduate study in areas of biology and medicine which emphasize a quantitative and analytical approach to the life sciences.
Prerequisites to Concentration. Biology
162 (or the equivalent); Chemistry
Mathematics 115 and 116; and Physics
240/241 - recommended sequence (or Physics
126/128). It is recommended that students interested in pursuing graduate work acquire a reading knowledge of French, German, or Russian.
Concentration Program. Must include:
- Required courses. Biology
310, 311 (or
Chemistry 451 and 452, or
Biological Chemistry 415); Biology
428; Two advanced lab courses from among: Biology
- Two advanced CMB courses chosen from among Biology
513, and 523. A third (or fourth) advanced CMB lab courses (306, 413, 419, 423, or 429) may also be used to meet this requirement. Only three credits of independent study may count toward the concentration program.
- One elective course, which can be:
- Any Biology class at the 200-, 300- or 400-level (except Biol.
412). A third advanced CMB course is permitted to meet this requirement.
- Chemistry 452
for students who elected the sequence
cognate course (as approved by the concentration advisor) in Chemistry (courses with a
Chem. 260 prerequisite),
Mathematics (courses with a
Math. 116 prerequisite), or Statistics.
Advising. Professors R. Bodmer, R. Cadigan, S. Clark, R. Ellis, J. Hay, J. Langmore, L. Olsen, E. Pichersky, and J. Schiefelbein are the concentration advisors. Appointments are scheduled at 1121 Natural Science Building.
