BIOL 3015: Molecular Biology

2 CreditsOnline Available

All areas of biology have been transformed by the recent advances in molecular biology technology. Every life scientist, whether they study viruses or crashes of elephants, uses DNA cloning, sequencing, and genomic analysis. This technology has also impacted all aspects of health care by generating highly specific diagnostic tools and personalized treatments. The purpose of this course is to give students a solid foundation in the principles and tools of molecular biology. Biol 3015 will introduce concepts and techniques for understanding gene expression and the flow of genetic information. We will discuss the structure of nucleic acids and proteins, the replication and repair of DNA, transcription and its regulation, and translation. Students will also learn about current technologies used in molecular biology including cloning, PCR, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, DNA microarrays, proteomics, bioinformatics, and whole genome analysis. Credit will not be granted if credit has been received for: BIOL 3025
