MCB*6310 Advanced Topics in Developmental and Cellular Biology U [0.50]

  • A study of selected topics in contemporary developmental and cellular biology. Students will review recent advances in these disciplines at the molecular and cellular level, in biological systems ranging from simple eukaryotes to plants and vertebrates.  

MCB*6370 Protein Structural Biology and Bioinformatics U [0.50]

  • This course explores structural biology from three perspectives: 1) the fundamental concepts in structural biology; 2) the methods used to determine structures (including x-ray crystallography, NMR, electron microscopy, and computational modeling); 3) the bioinformatic concepts and tools used to compare, contrast and assign biochemical function to protein structures and sequences. The course emphasizes building a conceptual and practical skill set that will be applicable to any structure related problem.

MCB*6500 MSc Research Topics in Molecular and Cellular Biology U [1.0] 

  • This mandatory two-semester course emphasizes the development and refinement of the skills of scientific communication. Students submit a written thesis proposal and present a public seminar on a contemporary subject in the molecular biosciences. MCB MSc students normally complete this course within the first two semesters of their program.  (see "Brown Bag" Seminar Presentations)

MCB*7500 PhD Research Topics in Molecular and Cellular Biology U [1.0] 

  • This mandatory two-semester course emphasizes the development and refinement of the skills of scientific communication. Students submit a written thesis proposal and present a public seminar on a contemporary subject in the molecular biosciences. MCB PhD students normally complete this course within the first two semesters of their program.  (see "Brown Bag" Seminar Presentations)

BINF*6110 Genomic Methods for Bioinformatics W [0.5]

  • This course provides an introduction to current and emerging methods used to generate genomic data analyzed in bioinformatics. This may include techniques for DNA sequencing as well as transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analysis. The objective is to develop an appreciation for the challenges of producing data. 

BIOT*6500 Molecular Biotechnology F [0.50]

  • This course will provide an overview of molecular approaches relevant to a broad range of biotechnology industries including those found in medical, microbial, protein, pharmaceutical, environmental and agricultural fields.
