MCB 493: Special Topics Mol Cell Biol

Section Type Times Days Location Instructor
APL LAB 10:00 AM - 01:50 PM F 485C Burrill Hall Brown, C
Advanced Physiology Lab Prerequisites: MCB 252 and MCB 253. This is an advanced laboratory course to study fundamental physiology concepts including full body metabolism, endocrine signaling, and neural, muscular, and cardiovascular systems using hands-on experiments and computer simulations. Students will measure and analyze how diet and exercise impinge on the response elicited from these different systems using a calorimeter, analyzing blood glucose and hormone levels, testing for stress/anxiety, and measuring heart rate and muscle contraction. MCB 493 APL involves the use of live animal subjects. Substitutions for the activities involving animals will not be provided. This course counts as an advanced MCB laboratory course. This section may not be repeated. Consult an MCB advisor for grade replacement situations.
Description Discussion of current topics of interest within the broad domain of molecular and cellular biology; seminar or lecture format. Topics vary. May be repeated to a maximum of 12 hours. Prerequisite: Junior standing and consent of instructor.
