BIO 325 - Molecular Cell Biology and Lab


Prerequisites: BIO 200  or consent of the instructor
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the Biology Core Concentration and the Biotechnology Certificate
This course examines the logic and mechanisms of gene regulation and the key experiments that revealed how oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes control the cell cycle. The molecular basis for cell signaling, cell adhesion, cytoskeleton dynamics, and organization of the extracellular matrix, are reviewed. In the laboratory students carry out experiments with mouse cells in order to learn the techniques of mammalian cell culture, flow cytometry, immunoblotting and immunofluorescence. Microarray technology and its application to the diagnosis of disease is also examined.
