Molecular and Cell Biology is a multidisciplinary endeavor that draws strength from biochemistry, genetics, physics, microbiology and other specialties. It is a science that asks questions about the most basic properties of life using the most sophisticated technology available. At its core, Molecular and Cell Biology is engaged in uncovering the fundamental processes of life. The implications of molecular and cell biology research are far ranging, from human health to bioremediation.
This course combines remote lectures via Microsoft Teams, and (for BCOR 103) weekly in-person laboratory exercises involving group and individual work. Students should expect to spend 2-4 hours per week on coursework outside of class, with additional time for exam preparation. (The lecture portion of this course is cross-listed as BCOR 103, MMG 196, and BIOL 108.)
Three midterm exams and one final exam, and (for BCOR 103) laboratory assignments.
