245 Cell & Developmental Biology (4 units) Fall
Restrictions: Instructor approval required for non-Tetrad students. Activities: Lecture, Conference
Training in the modern aspects of the molecular basis of cell function with emphasis on how cells move, secrete, divide, and communicate with each other.
250 Research (1 - 8 units) Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer
Instructor(s): Staff Prerequisite(s): Completion of 2 quarters of Biochemistry 215 in the year prior
Restrictions: Students must be in year 2 or above Activities: Independent Study, Laboratory
The course is intended to give students hands-on experience in investigation of a fundamental question in biology using modern techniques and approaches in Cell Bio. The scope of the research project, formulation of the hypothesis, and the necessary experimental approaches taken to test the hypothesis will be determined based on active input from the student and the lab’s Principle Investigator. The student is expected to become increasingly independent in each of these aspects of the project.
