|Course Type||:||Basic Specialized Courses|
|Starts 1||:||2 Autumn Semester|
|Lecturer||:||Maria VASSILEVA Designated Associate Professor|
|Aims: This course aims to develop students’ foundation in basic cell organization.
The course provides students with an overview of cell structure, proteins structure and function, and fundamental
genetic processes in the cell.

2. Protein structure and function;
3. Structure of DNA and chromosomes;
4. DNA replication, repair and recombination;
5. DNA expression
6. Control of gene expression
7. Introduction to evolutionary biology
8. Introduction to molecular biology methods
Assignments and preparations outside of class hours: students are required to prepare for each class by reading the
assigned textbook content and preparing a short schematic summary of important concepts before class.
