BIOL 300 - Cell Biology and Biochemistry

Examines the fundamental principles of eukaryotic cell biology at the molecular level with particular emphasis on biochemical approaches and mechanisms.  Topics will include:  structure and function of the plasma membrane, transport of small molecules, ions and macromolecular complexes across membranes, protein trafficking, the cytoskeleton, signal transduction pathways , and the control of cell division and cellular proliferations.  Examples of perturbations of these processes in human diseases (e.g., lysosomal disorders, hypercholesterolemia, and cancer) will be discussed throughout the course.  Required for all Biology majors.
