This course aims to familiarize engineering students with basic
molecular and cellular biology principles and concepts, and to apply
chemical and engineering principles to further the understanding of
biological systems. Topics include protein structure and function,
transcription, translation, post-translational processing, cellular
organization, molecular transport and trafficking, and cellular models.
