What you can learn.

  • Apply molecular biology as a tool to understand cancer and stem cells
  • Develop a sophisticated understanding of DNA, RNA, and protein
  • Interpret experimental data and design basic biology experiments

About this course:

This course presents the basic fundamentals of modern molecular biology both from the perspective of known molecular mechanisms for regulating fundamental processes in cells and also from a theoretical applied perspective for using molecular biology as a laboratory tool. Special emphasis will be placed on molecular mechanisms that relate to chromatin and histone modifications; DNA replication and repair; transposition; microRNAs; meiosis; and splicing. Application of molecular biology as a tool to understand embryonic development, reprogramming, cancer, and stem cells will also be presented. Emphasis will be placed on helping students develop a sophisticated understanding of DNA, RNA, and protein, as well as the capability of interpreting experimental data and designing basic experiments to address fundamental questions in biology. Transferable for UC credit.
