Back to Biology Courses

Department: 
Biology
Offered: 
Every spring.

Emphasis will be on the functional connections between nucleic acids and proteins, and the special role
that DNA plays in both heritability and in regulating cellular processes. Molecular methodologies like
gene cloning, genomics, and bioinformatics will be highlighted. The laboratory exercises will include
experiments designed to illustrate concepts central to cell and molecular biology and to familiarize
students with basic skills required at the laboratory bench. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory.
Cross-listed with BMB. 317. (Prerequisite: BIOL 231, 240, 313 and CHEM 205.)
