    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are pursuing a MCB minor or major you will have to end up taking this class. This class is easier in the spring so if you can take it then. It's just that its hard to understand what Dr. Prasanth is saying at times. I recommend recording the lectures then you can go back and listen.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the class is that everything was connected. You start learning broad then you go deeper and deeper into different processes. By the end you know so many different processes and reactions that are connected in some way. My favorite part was learning about nuclear transport.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Record lectures and listen to them before the exam. Write down all the systems and processes because so are so many connection between different proteins that it can get a little hectic if you dont write it down in a nice flow chart.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's required as an MCB major but it was a good class. You learn a lot of new material and refresh on many things from genetics. Dr. Rivier records all his lectures with video, so a lot of people choose not to attend lecture and just watch the videos that night, but I found it helpful to go to class and then watch the videos as a refreshment.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot about different pathways in the body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I personally took this course along with Orgo 2 which was awful because all of the exams were on the same day very close together in time. I always spent more time on orgo and figured this class would be super easy, but his questions were often poorly worded. Make sure you know things inside and out.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Was a great class to learn about the development of cells and tissues. In addition, was great in applying all topics to cancer.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about a range of topics from actin/microtubules to protein kinase pathways. We also learned about much of biochemistry of these pathways as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Staying in top of the material is important. I would not recommend buying or using the book, it didnt really help. You are better off just studying lecture slides and recordings.
