BIOL241 - Cell Biology


This cell biology course will provide a detailed understanding of the fundamental processes of cellular functions. The course will include aspects of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells as both often share similar mechanisms. In the first half of the course, the focus is on the macro-­-level with an exploration of basic cell characteristics, cellular membranes, cellular respiration and how cells interact with the environment. In the second half of the course, the focus is on genetics with a look at chromosomes, genes, gene expression, how cell accomplish DNA replication, repair errors that can result in DNA, how cells reproduce, how cells communicate, and finally we will explore the relationship between cancer and the immune system at the cellular level. Prerequisite: BIOL134, CHEM134
