GS04 1123   Molecular Biology of Eukaryotic Cells

Tyler, Jessica. Three semester hours. Spring annually. Prerequisite: none

This is an advanced molecular biology course on the fundamental cellular processes that are often disrupted in cancer.   Topics covered fall under the broad realm of gene expression and include the packaging of the genome into chromatin (epigenetics), transcriptional regulation, splicing, protein synthesis, protein degradation, signaling, cell cycle, apoptosis, DNA replication and repair. The current state of knowledge of these basic processes will be covered and will include up to date information from recent primary journal articles. This course fulfills GSBS molecular area breadth requirement and Genes and Development Program requirement.
