  • MCDB 1020 - Introduction to Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Major
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
    Introduces students to the Molecular and Cellular Biology major. Provides an overview of the major and how it differs from other CU biology programs; how to get involved in clubs, research, and/or internship opportunities; strategies for succeeding in MCDB courses; and career options. This is a first-year colloquium course specifically designed for freshman and other students exploring their educational and career opportunities in our department. Recommended restriction: New MCDB majors.
  • MCDB 1150 - Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2021
    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 non-majors. Degree credit not granted for this course and MCDB 1111. Recommended prerequisite: high school chemistry and algebra, and recommended corequisite of MCDB 1152.
  • MCDB 1152 - Problem Solving Co-Seminar for Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
    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 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2021
    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 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    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.
