BIOL 213 - Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry
Semester Offered: First Semester, Second Semester
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS, QFR
This course integrates biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology to provide a foundation for many of the more specialized courses in the major. Topics include structure and function of membranes and cell organelles; gene structure, function and regulation; bioenergetics; cell cycle control, signal transduction and genetic engineering. Laboratory exercises highlight the techniques used in cell and molecular biology research and teach experimental design, troubleshooting and critical analysis. Students must register for both lecture and laboratory. By taking both BIOL 213 and CHEM 254, students are exposed to the material typically covered in an undergraduate, introductory biochemistry course.
Enrollment Limit: 35
Instructor: K. Cullen, A. Goldman, L. Romberg
Prerequisites & Notes: Prerequisites: Bio 100 and the equivalent of a year of introductory chemistry (Chem 101 and 102, or Chem 103, or an AP equivalent).
