Course Strategy This course introduces students to the basic units of life - from molecules to cells.  The goal is to present to you a comprehensive set of information, entirely based on experimental evidence showing how cells function at the molecular level.  Because the common basic cellular mechanisms, underlining ALL living things, are fairly complex, and molecular biology has made impressive progress in the last decade, we partition the course into five hypothetical parts.

Part 1 composition of matter and basic chemistry of living cells;

Part 2 structure and function of cells;

Part 3 energy and chemical transformations in cells;

Part 4 information flow in cells, and

Part 5 create and analyze cellular processes
