BIOL 403 - The Cell and Molecular Biology of Pathogen-Host Interactions

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS, QFR, WADV

Bacterial pathogens both manipulate their eukaryotic host cells’ behavior and themselves change in response to contact with the host. We will use readings from the primary literature to examine the molecular mechanisms of these interactions and the methods used to study them. Student presentations will alternate with class discussions. Students will also write papers analyzing research from the primary literature.

Enrollment Limit: 14
