This introductory course in cell biology and molecular genetics is designed for students with a substantial background in biology. All of the material and lectures of BIOL/MB&B181 will be included, and an additional two-hour meeting per week will cover related topics in considerably greater depth. Students will be exposed to the primary research science literature, develop a detailed appreciation of current methodologies used in the field, learn how to interpret various forms of experimental data to infer biological meaning, and discuss applications of modern molecular/cellular research in medicine and society.
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.
