Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

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, Summer.

  • The internal organization of the cell, cellular organelles and their main functions.
  • The four major classes of macromolecules in cells.
  • The diversity of structures that allow proteins to execute nearly all of a cell's myriad functions.
  • The molecular basis of various cellular processes such as secretory pathway and the cell cycle.
  • The signaling pathways used by cells to communicate with each other and with their environment.
  • Individual cell behaviors that act to promote form and function of embryonic tissue and organs.
  • How to apply concepts learned in class to interpret hypothetical experimental observations.
  • How to acquire scientific information from various databases and from the primary literature.
