Pedagogical Approach:

Course Content:

  • Structure and Function of Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells 
  • Origin and evolution of cellular life and molecular evolution
  • Organelle structure and function
  • Membrane structure and function 
  • Cellular transport
  • Cellular chemistry and biomolecules 
  • Cellular metabolism (respiration and photosynthesis)
  • Cell reproduction and its controls
  • Cell communication
  • Classical/Mendelian genetics
  • Molecular genetics
  • DNA structure and function
  • Gene structure, gene expression and control of gene expression
  • Biotechnology
  • Scientific Inquiry

Laboratory Activities:

The laboratory component must include greater than 80% hands-on activities that support the learning goals of the course. Laboratory content must be considered when matching courses to this descriptor. Laboratory includes:

  • experimental design,
  • data analysis, and
  • techniques used to address questions in the field of cell and molecular biology (e.g. microscopy, spectrophotometry, gel electrophoresis).
Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Identify and describe biological molecules and cell structures and explain their functions
  • Compare and contrast cellular processes and interactions between prokaryotes and eukaryotes (including metabolism, reproduction, communication) 
  • Apply the principles of classical and molecular genetics to solve problems in genetics or biotechnology.
  • Relate evolutionary processes to the origin and evolution of cells.
  • Explain how DNA replicates and transmits genetic information within organisms. 
  • Apply the processes of scientific inquiry and experimental design to the study of biological concepts.
  • Acquire, read, evaluate, apply and cite scientific literature
  • Practice scientific writing
