BIOM 741 - Bioelectricity

Provides biomedical engineers with a grounding in molecular biology and a working knowledge of recombinant DNA technology, thus establishing a basis for the evaluation and application of genetic engineering in whole animal systems. Beginning with the basic principles of cell structure and function, this course examines the use of molecular methods to study gene expression and its critical role in health and disease. Topics include DNA replication, transcription, translation, methods for studying genes and gene expression at the mRNA and protein levels, methods for mutating genes and introducing genes into cells, methods for creating genetically-engineered mice and methods for accomplishing gene therapy by direct in vivo gene transfer.
