Bio 372 - Cellular Biology
372 Cellular Biology
Cellular Biology is an upper division lecture/laboratory/conference course that emphasizes relationships between structure and function in cellular activities. We explore the origins of eukaryotic cells, the structure, synthesis and discrete distribution of cellular proteins and the notion that cellular energy is information. We also discuss topics such as how cells transduce energy, move, reproduce, communicate, differentiate and die. Students write take-home essays on topics I suggest in lieu of formal in class exams. The laboratory component focuses on contemporary methodology and includes a six-week independent experiment in the second quarter of the semester. In an optional, weekly evening conference, we review selected literature in preparation for essay exams.
The course is taught by Maryanne McClellan. Office hours will be posted when they are available.
