About this Course

This course introduces the fundamental molecular processes that occur in living organisms. It features an emphasis on the structure and organization of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, DNA replication, gene expression and regulation, protein biochemistry, signal transduction and the extracellular matrix. You’ll examine experimental study techniques, with particular attention to the development of pharmaceuticals. Case studies illustrate important concepts and show how breakdown in the proper functioning of these systems may lead to human disease.

Prerequisite: Some undergraduate or graduate coursework in biology
