Students will demonstrate knowledge of the molecular architecture of the nucleus, including the nuclear envelope, nucleoplasm and nucleolus, chromatin, and the nuclear pore.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of protein transport, including nuclear import and export and vesicular transport through the secretory and sorting pathways.
Students will demonstrate knowledge of the molecular and cellular structure and dynamics of cytoskeletal systems.
Students will be able to apply the basic cell biological principles in outcomes 1-3 to more complicated cellular processes, including cell adhesion, cell migration, cell polarity, cell division, cancer, and development.
Students will demonstrate the ability to generate hypothesis about how cell biological systems work at the molecular level and design experiments that test that hypothesis.
Students will demonstrate competence in interpreting original raw data from cell biology experiments, including microscopy, protein biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics strategies
Students will demonstrate the ability to critically evaluate primary cell biology literature, including the ability to evaluate the design and interpretation of experimental data.
