BIOMG 1350

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

The course introduces molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells; how they organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues and organs in multicellular organisms; and how their misbehavior contributes to disease. The learning outcomes below indicate the topics and skills that students should master upon completion of the course.

When Offered Fall, spring.

Distribution Category (BIO-AG, PBS-AS)
