BIOMG 1350 - Introductory Biology: Cell and Developmental Biology


(BIO-AG, PBS-AS)      
Fall, spring, summer. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade. Students may not receive credit for BIOG 1140  after taking BIOMG 1350.

Fall, T. Huffaker; spring, A. Bretscher, M. Garcia-Garcia; summer, S. Jesch.

The course introduces molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells; how they organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues and organs in multicellular organisms; and how their misbehavior contributes to disease. The learning outcomes below indicate the topics and skills that students should master upon completion of the course.

Outcome 1: The internal organization of the cell, cellular organelles and their main functions.

Outcome 2: The four major classes of macromolecules in cells.

Outcome 3: The diversity of structures that allow proteins to execute nearly all of a cell’s myriad functions.

Outcome 4: The molecular basis of various cellular processes such as secretory pathway and the cell cycle.

Outcome 5: The signaling pathways used by cells to communicate with each other and with their environment.

Outcome 6: Individual cell behaviors that act to promote form and function of embryonic tissue and organs.

Outcome 7: How to apply concepts learned in class to interpret hypothetical experimental observations.

Outcome 8: How to acquire scientific information from various databases and from the primary literature.
