- Course Description: A multidisciplinary course in the cellular, molecular, biochemical and genetic basis of biomedical sciences, designed as a comprehensive first semester course for most incoming biomedical sciences graduate students.
- Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course: The College of Medicine Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences program is attempting to create a more integrated, less strictly discipline-based graduate program.
- What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? This course is part of a required sequence in the major. It can also serve Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Public Health, Nursing, and Cancer Biology.
- Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times? No.
- What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) All course instructors will be faculty at the COM, with a Ph.D., M.D., or both doctoral degrees.
- Objectives: This course will serve as a comprehensive course for graduate students in the biomedical sciences, designed to teach the fundamental principles of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and genetics.
- Learning Outcomes: See above.
- Major Topics: Cell structure and the genome ; Protein structure/function; Enzyme kinetics and regulation; Carbohydrate metabolism; Fatty acid metabolism; Eicosanoid metabolism; Nucleic acid, Amino acid, and biogenic amine metabolism; Cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism; DNA & Chromosomes; DNA replication, repair; DNA recombination; Transcription; Translation; RNA editing, splicing; Gene Expression; Fundamental genetics – inherited disorders; Viral vector technologies; Cellular and molecular techniques; Bioinformatics; Membrane structure/composition + membrane potential; Ion channels; Transport mechanisms; Intracellular compartments; Protein sorting; Intracellular vesicular transport; Membrane receptors; Intracellular receptors (steroid and nuclear); Receptor Theory; G proteins and 2nd messengers; Kinases and phosphatases; Cytoskeleton; Cell Cycle; Apoptosis; Cell Division; Cell junctions; Cell-cell adhesion; Extracellular matrix; Integrins; Germ cells & Fertilization; Development; Tissue types and histology; Stem Cells; Cancer Biology; Immunology; Pathogens
