Faculty of Science Department of Chemistry and Biology BLG311 – Cell Biology I Course Number CBLG311 Course Name Cell Biology I Date Spring 2018 Instructors Dr. Roberto Botelho, VIC 702, [email protected] Office Hours Tuesdays 4:30-5:30pm Course Description This course will examine key concepts of cell structure and function. This includes membrane structure and function, membrane transport mechanisms of small molecules and ions, cytoplasmic organization, intracellular targeting and sorting of proteins, membrane trafficking, the cytoskeleton and nuclear organization. We will also examine various methods used to visualize and study cell structure and function. Instruction Mode Lecture: 6 hours per week Prerequisite BLG 143 and BLG 144 Text Alberts, B., Johnson, A., Lewis, J., Raff, M., Roberts, K. and Walter, P. 2014 (or 2008). Molecular Biology of the Cell. 6 th (or 5 th ) edition. Garland Science. Readings Refer to D2L for any additional suggested readings. Additional Sample problems may be discussed in class and/or posted to D2L. Make it a habit to check D2L regularly as addition of material to this site may not be announced explicitly during the lectures or laboratories. Evaluation Midterm exam 1 (tentatively, TBA) 25% Midterm exam 2 (tentatively, TBA) 30% Final exam 45% The final exam is comprehensive (cumulative). 1
Course Policies Ryerson University Undergraduate Course Management Policy details can be found at . Additional specific course polices for CBLG311 are as follows: Policies for Lectures: 1) Cell phones must be on silent throughout the lectures. Do not simply have your cell phones on vibrate, silent means silent . 2) Laptops may be used in class. However, Dr. Botelho reserves the right to ask that a student turn off his/her laptop if it is disruptive to peers. It is very easy for an instructor to tell if you are watching a movie or taking notes based on what the students behind you are looking at, so please limit your laptop use to course-related functions. 3) Please ask Dr. Botelho for consent to record lectures. If you record, you agree that you will not share and post the recordings anywhere or you will be breaking copyright agreement. 4) Respect is a three-way street: it involves you, your peers and the instructor. If student behaviour is deemed disruptive, i.e., impedes the ability of the instructor to teach or the learning environment of your peers, you may be asked to sit elsewhere or leave the lecture. Continued misbehaviour will be referred to disciplinary action. 5) Do NOT expect that all information needed to pass this course will be posted on D2L for download or be explicitly assigned as study material from the textbook . All information needed to pass this course will be given in class (with the exception of the self-study section on Cell Cycle). This means you should attend lectures since this is the material on which you will be tested. Your book (Alberts) is a critical component in this course and you should have access to one. You will be asked to
