This course examines the structure and function of living cells. The course extends and adds to the fundamental cell biology knowledge students acquire in BIO 1570, Principles of Biology I. In the lecture component of the course, students will learn about energy use by cells; cellular proteins and enzymes; DNA, chromosomes, and gene expression; membrane structure and transport; cellular organelles; cell communication; the cytoskeleton; and control of the cell cycle and cell death. In the laboratory portion of the course, students will learn how to perform contemporary methods used to manipulate cells and molecules within cells.

Students will be introduced to problem-solving using modern laboratory techniques in molecular biology that were first introduced in courses such as: Principles of Biology, Genetics, and Cell and Molecular Biology. Problem solving draws on the basic techniques of molecular biology used in the study of gene structure and function, including DNA/RNA and plasmid isolation, protein extraction, Southern blotting and Western blotting, PCR, gene cloning, and others. This course provides hands-on experience with the techniques and instrumentation used in the modern biotechnology laboratory. Prerequisite: BIO 2560; Corequisite: BIO 2800. Master Course Syllabus

Students will study the mechanisms needed to establish normal immunity, as well as the biological problems that can arise in allergies, autoimmunity, and chronic inflammation. As such they will learn about diseases from which so many suffer. In addition, during laboratories, students will be engaged in individual research projects to learn invaluable standard operating procedures for laboratory work, like good note keeping, making reagents, etc. The research projects will be used as a vehicle for them to learn the important biotechnology techniques and concepts that have developed out of the field of immunology, as well as to prepare them for an undergraduate research experience should they choose. Special emphasis will be placed on the nexus between immunology, molecular biology, and pathophysiology. Prerequisite: BIO 2560 or BIO 2800. Master Course Syllabus
