         Course Description:

This course covers fundamental aspects of molecular biology with emphasis on human genome: composition, chemical and physical properties, genes, and gene products. The course covers most DNA-associated processes such as replication, transcription, translation, as well as DNA transposition, recombination and rearrangements, gene expression, and recent advances in molecular biology. The course aims at providing basic knowledge necessary to understand the importance of the central dogma in molecular biology and the more advanced concepts such as genetic engineering or recombinant DNA technology.

2) Molecular Biology Web Book 

3) Molecular Cell Biology Web Book

ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION:  Attendance at all of the class sessions is mandatory unless you are sick.

HOMEWORK: Questions and problems will be given as homework regularly: they are designed to encourage your regular reading of the material and completing them will help you prepare for the exams. 

PERFORMANCE EVALUATON: Grades will be determined by two 50 minute in-class exams, as well as by class participation and two hours final exam. The questions on exams will consist of short answers, multiple-choices, correct statements and assay questions. Questions about exam scores or requests for re-grading must be submitted in writing to the course faculty within one week after any given exam is returned.
