BIOL 41500 Introduction to Molecular Biology
Session Offered:Spring Credit 3.0
BIOL 23100 and BIOL 24100 and BIOL 23200 OR (BIOL 23000 and BME 20100)
An introduction to modern molecular biology techniques and how they are utilized to address current topics in eukaryotic gene expression. Emphasis will be placed on experimental procedures and model systems, such as site-directed mutagenesis of isolated genes and their subsequent introduction into mammalian cells. Topics will include the molecular control mechanisms associated with RNA transcription and processing, protein-DNA interactions, gene regulation in development and growth control.
