BCH 361 - Molecular Biology

Molecular biology deals with nucleic acids and proteins and how these molecules interact within the cell. This course will emphasize the molecular mechanisms of DNA replication, repair, transcription, protein synthesis, and gene regulation in different organisms. We will study the techniques and experiments used to discern these mechanisms. In addition, we will take an in-depth look at some rapidly evolving fields, including chromatin structure and function, RNA polymerase dynamics, and regulation of gene expression by different types of RNAs.
Be active throughout the semester and make sure you take advantage of every possible resource that will help you to successfully complete this course.
