MCDB 4202 - The Python Project uri icon



  • Studies how python hearts grow after they consume a meal. Understanding the molecular processes of growth and regression in the python heart could lead to development of therapeutics for heart disease. Students work in groups in the laboratory and generate novel data by using modern molecular biology and bioinformatic techniques to clone and sequence candidate molecules of the python genome. May be repeated once. Recommended prerequisites: MCDB 3135 and MCDB 3145 (minimum grade C-).
