Examples of such topics include the dynamics of protein folding; mechanisms of intracellular transport; gene therapy; and the genetic and molecular basis of certain diseases such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, and cancer, with emphasis on free-radical production and damage to cellular membranes and to DNA; and defects in DNA repair and cell-cycle regulation.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation, Quantitative Reasoning
Students will interpret various forms of experimental data in order to infer biological meaning.

Students will analyze experimental data that is quantitative in nature, as well as apply statistical approaches, in order to understand important scientific advances in biology.
