BIO 502 Cell Biology (Graduate)

This course is intended to develop deeper insight into the complexities of cell structure, function, and cellular processes with a focus on biosynthesis, cell signaling, regulation of proteins, and cell cycle/apoptosis. Throughout the course emphasis will be placed on how the dysfunction or disruptions in these cellular processes lead to disease of the organism.  An understanding of common laboratory methodologies used in cell biology will also be discussed as a basis for understanding primary literature. Note: This course is designed for those seeking the credentials required by many regional accrediting bodies in order to be able to teach advanced placement, concurrent early college, and undergraduate college Biology courses.

Prerequisite:  A working knowledge of cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry is recommended. A bachelor’s degree with a Biology major or state certified to teach Biology at a secondary school level.

Prerequisite Courses: Undergraduate coursework at a C level or higher in Introductory Biology, Introductory Biology Lab, General Chemistry, and General Chemistry Lab.
