BIOL-224 Cellular & Genetic Systems
A presentation of the basic concepts in cellular and molecular biology and genetics. Topics Include: structure and function of cells and macromolecules; energy and metabolism; cell division and regulation; DNA replication, transcription and translation; genetics; control of gene expression; and cellular mechanisms of development.. Students develop critical thinking skills by applying these concepts to biological problems and practice basic scientific communication skills. Laboratories make use of state-of-the-art methodologies to address interesting questions about cellular and genetic functions, thereby giving students insights into the practice of contemporary cellular and molecular biology research. Lectures and laboratories. Prerequisites: Biology 123, Chemistry 103. Corequisite Mathematics 143 must be taken concurrently with either biology 224 or 225.
