Molecular Biology of the Cell

We will read through the textbook “Molecular Biology of the Cell”, one chapter per class.  

Students will work through the Problems workbook on their own as needed, but Professor Kono offers Office hours every Friday for student help.  



Three small examinations will be required during the term, weighted 25%, 25%, and 50% 

The first two exams cover material up to that time.   The final exam covers all material of the term. 

Grade expectations are  
A corresponds to scores of 85-100% 

B corresponds to scores of 70-84% 

C corresponds to scores of 60-69% 

Scores less than 60% receive a fail grade. 

Prerequisites or Prior Knowledge

The course is very basic. Non-biology students are welcome.
