(Offered as BIOL 370 and BCBP 370) A study of the molecular mechanisms underlying the transmission and expression of genes. DNA replication and recombination, RNA synthesis and processing, and protein synthesis and modification will be examined. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems will be analyzed, with an emphasis upon the regulation of gene expression. Application of modern molecular methods to biomedical and agricultural problems will also be considered. Four classroom hours per week.
Requisite: BIOL 191 or equivalent. Limited to 15 students. Not open to first-year students. Fall Semester. Visiting Assistant Professor Lee.
If Overenrolled: Equal preference given to Biology, BCBP, and Neuroscience Majors; additionally, seniors have preference.
