Courses will be added to the Summer Session roster between November and May. Visit often to see the latest information.

Course description

The course introduces molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells; how they organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues and organs in multicellular organisms; and how their misbehavior contributes to disease. For more information, see courses.cit.cornell.edu/biomg1350/. The learning outcomes below indicate the topics and skills that students should master upon completion of the course.

Outcome 1: The internal organization of the cell, cellular organelles and their main functions.

Outcome 2: The four major classes of macromolecules in cells.

Outcome 3: The diversity of structures that allow proteins to execute nearly all of a cell's myriad functions.

Outcome 4: The molecular basis of various cellular processes such as secretory pathway and the cell cycle.

Outcome 5: The signaling pathways used by cells to communicate with each other and with their environment.

Outcome 6: Individual cell behaviors that act to promote form and function of embryonic tissue and organs.

Outcome 7: How to apply concepts learned in class to interpret hypothetical experimental observations.

Outcome 8: How to acquire scientific information from various databases and from the primary literature.

Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade. Students may not receive credit for BIOG 1140 after taking BIOMG 1350.

This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and precollege students.
