BIOL 103 The Molecular Mechanisms of Cellular Responses

Together with Microbiology 104, this course constitutes the second term of a year-long graduate-level sequence in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology. The central theme of the course is the molecular mechanisms by which cells respond to stimuli, to their environment and to other cells. Topics include membrane transport, protein targeting, energy conversion, signal transduction cell motility and the cytoskeleton, and the cell cycle. Emphasis will be placed on the experimental basis for understanding cell function. This course culminates with discussion of the fidelity of cellular responses to both ‘self’ and pathogens. Note that this course must be taken concurrently with Microbiology 104 and that students will need to enroll in both courses to complete the Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program requirements for winter term. Not open to undergraduate students.
