BIOL 204, Cell Biology — every fall

images from BIOL 204

Prerequisites: BIOL 101, CHEM 121/123. Survey of the fundamental principles of the cell including cellular variety, ultrastructure, cellular reproduction, metabolism, cytogenetics, and introduction to molecular biology.

BIOL 313, Genetics — every spring

student doing Genetics research

Prerequisites: BIOL 101, 204; CHEM 121/123, 122/124. The fundamental concepts of heredity with consideration given to both modern and classical genetics. Microorganisms, as well as Drosophila, are used in the laboratory to acquaint the student with the procedures and techniques used by the geneticist.

Take a look at some students' original research posters from this class. These student projects connect to my research interests in CK1 family of protein kinases.

BIOL 405, Advanced Cell Biology — spring of even years

Prerequisites: BIOL 101, 204, 313, and junior or senior standing. Study of cellsí adaptations for living in a social context, with emphasis on cell cycle control and its relationships with extracellular signals. Spring of even-numbered years.

BIOL 395 (Selected Topics), Biology of Cancer — spring of odd years
