BIOL 307: Cell Biology

Term: Fall

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements:

An advanced treatment of the structure and function of eukaryotic cells. Major emphasis will be placed upon the roles played by biological membranes in cell nutrition and energy transduction; on processes of signal transduction; on the roles of the cytoskeleton in cell structure, motility, and reproduction; on mechanisms that regulate the cell cycle and cell death; and on mechanisms that regulate intracellular trafficking. Optional laboratory credit is available by taking BMB 310 (see Biochemistry and Molecular Biology program under Interdisciplinary Study).

Prerequisites: Biology I Biology I Lab,
