    COGS 8022 - Molecular Cell Biology



    Prerequisites: Acceptance into the School of Graduate Studies. One semester course focuses on the study of the cell as the fundamental structural and functional unit of which all living organisms are constructed. Cell biology serves as a bridge between molecular biology, basic biochemistry, physiology, and morphology at the gross anatomical level and is increasingly a principal area of focus for biomedical research. In this course, the properties of cells are analyzed initially by viewing the structural organization, functional interactions, and biogenesis of cellular components with particular emphasis on understanding of processes involved in regulating the specific composition and interactions of cellular organelles. This understanding forms a basis for the subsequent consideration of cell-cell interactions at the cellular and the tissue level.
