This is a blended course. Time traditionally spent onsite will be replaced by seventeen hours of outside-of-class coursework (in addition to assigned homework).
Tu, 1:30 - 2:50pm
Provides a complement to the BCMB core curriculum. Student reads research papers relating to a core lecture topic. Discussions are led by a student while a faculty member from Biochemistry or MMI act as facilitator. Helps students to develop skills in reading the primary literature and provides an introduction to the experimental paradigms underlying the concepts presented in the core course.
Learning ObjectivesUpon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Read and critically evaluate primary research literature in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology
