BIOL 137 - Cell Biology

Type of Course: Lecture, Laboratory
The cell as a functional unit is discussed from the molecular level to the whole cell. Included are introductions to the biochemistry and metabolic roles of some of the molecules and macromolecules that are found in cells. Also discussed are the evolution, structure and function of the various subcellular organelles and the cytoskeleton. Emphasis is placed on understanding the molecular mechanisms behind cell physiology and the experimental methods used to determine those mechanisms.

Prerequisites: BIOL 100 , BIOL 101  or BIOL 103 , and BIOL 102 .
