  • Overview

    Cells are the fundamental unit of life. Every organism consists of many cells or it itself is a single cell. Thus, if one can understand cell structure and cell function, one can have a better understanding of life processes whether one is dealing with animals, plants, or microorganisms. This course will allow the student to develop a basic knowledge of cells and to become acquainted with various techniques that are used to study cells.

    Course objectives:
    1. To have the student develops a better understanding of the nature of cells
    2. To familiarize the student with the many aspects of cell biology - for example, cell structure, cell chemistry, cell metabolism cell genetics, cell membranes, cellular communication, protein synthesis, and cell division
    3. To teach the student problem solving skills and how to think scientifically
