Molecular Biology of the Cell

Survey the molecular biology of the cell, the universal biochemical mechanisms at the heart of all living organisms, through lectures based on the classic text by Alberts et al.  Working through research-based problem sets, explore the cell and its components and constituents from the level of individual molecules to their interaction, dynamics and control at the cellular and intercellular level.  Classroom discussions explore new findings that may challenge previous conclusions.


Prerequisites or Prior Knowledge

No assumed knowledge. The course is very basic. Non-biology students are welcome.
