Subject: BIOL 24300 Introduction Cell Biology
Credits: 4 (Class 3, Lab. 3)
Prerequisite: BIOL 10100 and BIOL 10200 and CHM 11600
Lecture emphasizes the unity of cellular processes among all living organisms. Topics covered include: molecular mechanisms regulating cellular activities involved in ion and solute transport; organelle biogenesis; protein trafficking and vesicular transport; structure and function of cell cytoskeleton; cell signaling, cycle and cycle control; and cancer biology. The laboratory complements lecture with experiments that incorporate procedures and techniques used in research, medical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical laboratories.
