CELL BIOLOGY BIOL3030 Spring 2011 Tuesday/Thursday 8:00 am-9:15 am Memorial Field House 2100 INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Deborah Vestal BO 2009C 383-4134 530-1581 Deborah. [email protected] . edu OFFICE HOURS Tues. 9:20-10:30 and Thurs. 9:20-10:15, by appointment COURSE DESCRIPTION The focus of Cell Biology is the study of the structure and function of the cell. In this course we will focus on Eukaryotic cell biology and will cover topics such as membrane structure and composition, transport, and trafficking; the cytoskeleton and cell movement; the breakdown of macromolecules and generation of energy; and the integration of cells into tissues. We will also cover important cellular processes such as cell cycle regulation, signal transduction, apoptosis (programmed cell death), and cancer cell biology. Throughout the semester we will attempt to relate defects in these various cellular processes to human diseases to help gain a better understanding for what happens when cells don’t work as they should. REQUIRED TEXT Lodish et. al. Molecular Cell Biology . Sixth Edition. Freeman Press. A free Companion Website accompanies the book at http: //bcs . whfreeman .com/lodish6e . There you will find activities, animations, podcasts, classic experiments, as well as self-quizzes and additional resources that you might find useful when preparing for exams.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
