This course is a comprehensive survey of the molecules and molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes. It will focus on the cornerstone biological processes of genome replication, gene expression, and protein function. The major biomacromolecules-DNA, RNA, and proteins-will be analyzed to emphasize the principles that define their structure and function. We will also consider how these components interact in larger networks within cells to permit processing of external and internal information during development and discuss how these processes become perturbed in disease states.

This course is intended to be the final course in the normal "core curriculum" sequence of BIOL/MB&B-181, 182 and MB&B208. It is strongly suggested that the student have completed, or be in the process of completing, at least one year of chemistry. It is preferable to have taken CHEM141, 142, 251 or CHEM143, 144, 251 and to be in the process of taking CHEM252.
