Advanced Topics in Molecular Biology
This course investigates recent advances in molecular approaches to the study of prokaryotic and specialized eukaryotic cells. An organismal perspective is enhanced through detailed examination of molecular processes. Specifically, cellular composition and output related to biochemical, biophysical and bioprocessing aspects are discussed. Areas of focus may include genetic organization, protein structure and function, and byproduct formation. Throughout the course, students are exposed to modern and emerging techniques used in the integration and understanding of these processes.
