Molecular Biology

Course Number: 
Minimum Credits: 
The field of molecular biology explores the chemical and physical mechanisms that underlie genetic phenomena, from the organization and maintenance of the genome, the transmission and expression of genetic information, gene regulatory networks, molecular interactions of nucleic acids with each other and with proteins and how all of these activities govern cell structure and function. In this course students will engage in a detailed study of varied aspects of molecular biology and have significant exposure to techniques used in molecular biology research.
