Hours & Credits
RNA is one of the important macromolecules (along with DNA and proteins) that are essential for all known forms of life. Within the last decade, RNA biology has become one of the most exciting topics in life science. In this course, students will be introduced to a wide variety of RNA molecules and their functions in a cell.
The first part focuses on mRNA biology. The second part is dedicated to non-coding RNA biology. Non-coding RNAs range from the classical rRNAs and tRNAs to species that have been identified more recently (such as microRNAs and short interfering RNAs).
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
