Course expectations: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to Describe the forces stabilizing the structures of proteins, nucleic acids and membranes. Discuss the mechanism and regulation of gene expression in eucaryotic cells. Elaborate the strategies eucaryotic cells use to solve problems such as obtaining energy and sorting proteins to the correct organelle within the cell. Outline the pathways that eukaryotic cells use for signaling and the role of the cytoskeleton in organizing and regulating the cell. Find structural information and read experimental papers in the scientific literature Text and Equipment: the 5 th edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell by Alberts, Johnson, Lewis, Raff, Roberts and Walter and the accompanying DVD (Garland Science, 2008). You may also purchase or rent the e-book from the VitalSource store at http://store.vitalsource.com/show/9781136844423 (scroll down for $79.50 for 180 days).

Lecture format: I will post the Powerpoint slides for each lecture and other materials under Resources on our Sakai classroom. You may download the slides and bring your laptop to lecture if you wish. Class participation is very important in this course. Many of the quiz and problem points will be earned in class, and cannot be made up. In some cases, students may work in groups to solve problems in class. Attendance is thus essential; please notify me if you are ill or unable to attend lecture. It is also important that you do the reading assignments in advance and come to class prepared to ask questions and discuss the material. Please turn off all cell phones at the beginning of each lecture and examination, and do not bring glass bottles to class. Eating is not permitted in class. Examinations:
