BIOL 4260 - Advanced Cell Biology

 This course is designed to enable students to understand how an organism functions at the cellular and molecular level, and further, how this functioning is regulated so that cells can adapt to changes in their environment. Students will learn the fundamental components of the cell (from protein to organelle), their characteristics, and how these components function in both normal and diseased cells. Students will also learn biochemical, structural, and mechanical aspects of cell functioning and regulation in normal and diseased cells. In addition, students will learn to critically read current scientific literature. By reading current literature, students will gain knowledge of the practice and presentation of science, as well as learn about new techniques and findings. This course can be used to fulfill the Culminating Experience in Biology.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: BIOL 2120 and one of the following: BIOL 4620, BIOL 4760.

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Cross Listed: BIOL 6260. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and BIOL 6260.
