  • MCDB 1150 - Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Covers biologically important macromolecules and biological processes, together with an introduction to cell structure, function, and physiology. Provides the foundation for advanced MCDB courses to majors, and a rigorous overview of modern biology to nonmajors. MCDB 1151 must be taken concurrently by MCDB and biochemistry majors and prehealth science students. Recommended prerequisite: high school chemistry and algebra, and recommended corequisites of MCDB 1151 and MCDB 1152. Degree credit not granted for this course and MCDB 1111.
  • MCDB 1152 - Problem Solving Co-Seminar for Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Uses problem solving and other interactive group work to aid student learning in a corequisite course, MCDB 1150. Students will work in small groups on learning and practicing how to solve difficult conceptual problems, as well as using hands-on activities and concept mapping to help learn content. Recommended corequisite: MCDB 1150.
  • MCDB 1161 - From Dirt to DNA: Phage Genomics Laboratory I
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Provides laboratory experience working on a bacteriophage genomics research project. Students will study novel bacteriophage they isolate from the environment. Topics covered include phage biology, bacteria and phage culturing and amplification, DNA isolation, restriction digest analysis, agarose gel electrophoresis, and electron microscopy.
  • MCDB 2161 - From DNA to Genes, Phage Genomics Laboratory II
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Provides laboratory experience working on a bacteriophage isolated during the previous semester. Topics include bioinformatics, genome annotation, open reading frame and RNA identification, BLAST analysis, phylogenetics and submission to a genomic database.
