BIO620 Seminar in Cell Biology

Lead Faculty: Dr. Michael R. Maxwell

Course Description

Discussion of cellular and subcellular organization, structure, and function. Students examine research topics at the level of the cell.

Learning Outcomes

  • Investigate a topic in biology at the cellular level for a species, taxon, or clade.
  • Relate the topic to a subdiscipline within cell biology, such as cellular respiration, cell signaling, gametogenesis, embryology, immunology, microbiology.
  • Investigate a research question in peer-reviewed and primary literature in cell biology.
  • Evaluate peer-reviewed and primary literature in cell biology, with attention to unresolved questions.
  • Link concepts in cell biology to a higher level of biological organization, such as organismal biology or ecology.
  • Communicate research findings in written and oral formats.
