This course aims a basic and comprehensive understanding about the structure and function of the cell. This course will cover topics such as gene expression, cellular membrane, energy metabolism, signal transduction, the cytoskeleton, and cell cycle regulation. In this course, students will acquire knowledge and skills related to DP1 and DP2.
The goals of this course are the fundamental understanding of cellular biology. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to describe the regulatory mechanism of gene expression, the function of cellular membrane and cytoskeleton, energy metabolism pathway, the role and regulation of signal transduction, and cell cycle regulation.
The final grade will be based on two quizzes at 5th and 10th lecture (20 point each) and the final examination (60 point). A score of 60 points or more (out of 100 points) is passed. To give feedback, the answer of the final exam will be uploaded to the LMS. The reexamination will not be taken place.
