|Course Type||:||Basic Specialized Courses|
|Starts 1||:||2 Spring Semester|
|Lecturer||:||Maria VASSILEVA Designated Associate Professor||DAMNJANOVIC Jasmina Assistant Professor||Joyce A. CARTAGENA Designated Associate Professor|
|Aims: this course provides students with knowledge on cellular membranes structure and its fundamental importance
for cellular processes - intracellular transport, cell communication and responses to the environment. Furthermore,
the course provides details on the mechanisms of how plant and animal cells generate energy.
|Fundamentals of Biology 1|
|1. Membrane structure and function
2. Intracellular Compartments and Transport;
3. Cell Communication;
4. How cells obtain energy from food
5. Energy Generation in Mitochondria and Chloroplasts.
Preparation outside the class hours: students are required to prepare before class by reading the assigned textbook
material and creating schematic summary of important concepts before class.
