Describe how a living cell is constructed, and recognize the relationships among its components. 3. Explain the physical and chemical bases for the activities of living cells and elucidate how these activities are controlled. 4. Demonstrate familiarity with the cellular and molecular processes involved in inheritance. 5. Identify examples of recent advances in applied cellular and molecular biology and evaluate their impacts on society. Major Course Requirements A. Lecture (75% of final grade) 1.
