BCH 720 - Cellular Dynamics and Function

(3 units)
Students will analyze current research directions aimed at a theory-driven understanding of cellular and subcellular systems using model organisms (plant and non-plant systems).

Grading Basis: Graded
Units of Lecture: 2
Units of Laboratory/Studio: 1
Offered: Every Fall

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. design experimental strategies for current research questions related to cell biology that utilize microscopy, genetics, and biochemical approaches.
2. demonstrate a working knowledge of advanced topics in cell biology through oral presentations, in-depth discussions and a written research proposal
3. explain how a hypothesis can or cannot be tested in the context of available experimental tools.
4. formulate and experimentally test a hypothesis using an experimental technique, such as microscopy, genetics or biochemistry
5. explain the rationale and potential impact of the cell biology-related grants currently funded by the NSF-MCB program in Cellular Dynamics and Function
