BIOL4100K - Cell & Molecular Biology
Course Subject Code
Cell & Molecular Biology
This course covers the novel concepts in molecular mechanisms essential to structures and functions of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Topics include organization and maintenance of cellular structure, metabolism, regulatory pathway, transcriptional regulation, protein synthesis, cell signaling and cell cycle. The laboratory provides an introduction to techniques used to interpret molecular functions of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Topics include selected experiment protocols on Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic acid (RNA) extractions, DNA sequencing, recombinant DNA methods, restriction enzyme endonuclease digestion, gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, southern blotting, analysis and reporting of gene expression and protein chemistry. Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C in the following courses: BIOL 3100 and BIOL 3500K.
