Bio 2015 - Cell Biology (Now in 4D) Spring 2009 Professor: Dr. Natalie Coe Office Location: Ames 109 Office Hours: TR 1-2:45pm W 9-11, F by appt (Ackley 108 or Ames 109) E-mail: [email protected] Phone: 287-8396 Required Texts: Essential Cell Biology , Alberts, Bray et al., 2 nd edition The Student Lab Notebook (Hayden-McNeil) Location: Terrace 123 (class) Ackley 106/108 (lab) Schedule: TF 11:00-12:15, R (alternate) 1:00-5:00pm Teaching Assistant: Jennifer Conrad (Ackley 108) Course Objectives The principal goals of the class are to: 1) provide a historical context for present day understanding of cellular systems 2) use classical experimentation to explore experimental design and data analysis 3) review principles of chemistry (CHEM 1021) as they apply to living systems 4) examine anabolic and catabolic pathways and how energy is stored and used by cells 5) increase understanding of the three dimensional structure of proteins 6) begin to explore the relationship between structure and function in proteins 7) review and expand (in depth) on universal cell functions first introduced in biology (BIO 1035-7), specifically DNA replication, transcription and translation 8) explore animal models as the basis of understanding genetic disorders in humans Successful completion of this course will ensure that you are prepared for advanced courses in Genetics as well as the Biology senior capstone courses (Biochemistry and Evolution). The principal goals of the laboratory are to have all students: 1) become more comfortable in a molecular laboratory setting 2) keep an excellent laboratory notebook in which all observations are carefully noted and described 3) learn basic laboratory techniques commonly used in scientific laboratories including: • proper use of micropipettes, lab scale, pH meter, microcentrifuges • preparation of stock and working solutions/buffers • protein expression, SDS-PAGE, western analysis • enzyme assays • column chromatography 4) analyze data appropriately and draw reasonable conclusions

Course Policies Design. New material will be presented daily (generally lecture format), reinforced and extended weekly (individual and group problem solving, hands-on activities, short exercises) and evaluated regularly (in the form of problem sets). As the course progresses, the laboratory component will complement in-class material and should help to further solidify key concepts. Please do not let material “pile up” that you do not understand. Ask questions! There will be three formal exams, including a cumulative final.
