Cell Biology (BIO330)
This course is a study of the fundamental principles and concepts of cell biology. Topics include a discussion of cell structure and chemistry, bioenergetics, enzyme kinetics, cell metabolism, cell transport processes, cell to cell communication, cell motility, the extracellular environment, and regulation of gene expression in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Upon completion the student should be able to demonstrate an understanding of cell structure and function. Lab exercises reinforce and demonstrate theory content and provide an introduction to laboratory techniques of biotechnology. Prerequisites: BIO101 or BIO190, or permission of Instructor. Credit: 4 hours (3 hours theory, 1 hour lab).
