BIO 445 - Seminar: Biochemistry of Gene Expression (2 Cr.)

(formerly CHE 345)
The development of many powerful biotechnologies, such as PCR, RNAi and CRISPR - to name only a few - grew out of basic research into the biochemical mechanisms of gene expression. Many of these technologies have important medical, societal and environmental applications, and furthermore their development has contributed to great advancements in basic research. This seminar will focus on recent scientific progress beyond “textbook” understanding of the machinery of gene expression, and explore the synergistic relationship between basic research and biotechnology, through the study of primary literature, discussions and student presentations. Prerequisite: BIO 220 . Levine.
