Cellular and Molecular Biology (CMPB 5003 01)
Course Director: Nicholas Brady, PhD
An overview of modern cellular and molecular biology for computational biologists.
The course presents a review of essential cellular and molecular processes aimed at students with limited educational background in biology. Topics include cellular structure and function, genetics and genomics, transcriptomics, proteins and proteomics, post-translational regulation, and cell signaling. The course will have a special focus on experimental techniques and data quantification, including methods pertaining to computational biology. Methodologies and quantification include: microscopies, PCR, blots, antibodies, immunoprecipitation, fluorescence, mass spectroscopy, and flow cytometry. The course will also cover latest genetic engineering techniques and showcase visualization of 3D protein structures.
The course will consist of twice-weekly lectures within 5 subject modules.
Time: Mondays and Wednesdays 2:00pm-3:30pm
