BIO 242(E) - Cell Biology

Credit(s): 4
3 lecture hours 3 lab hours
MassTransfer Block Code: Natural & Physical Laboratory Science
In this course, we will explore current advances in the cell biology of plants, animals, protists, and fungi.  Building on knowledge from introductory courses, we will closely examine: eukaryotic cell structure and function, membrane dynamics, inter and intra-cellular signaling, metabolism, protein expression and trafficking, cell cycle, cell fate determination, and how cellular processes integrate to produce “life”.  Students will read and discuss recent and classic papers from cell biology primary literature.  In the laboratory, we will design and execute experiments with model organisms using techniques such as: microscopy, cell fractionation, enzyme assays, molecular genetics, bioinformatics, and cell culture.  

Prerequisite(s): BIO 107 , BIO 229 , or BIO 243  with a grade of C or better
Pre/Corequisite(s): CHM 121  
Note: BIO 107  is the recommended prerequisite
