Selected Topics in Biomedical Sciences
Cr. 3. (3-3-0). May be repeated when topics vary.
Selected Topics in Biomedical Sciences.

BIMS 6322:

Biochemical and Molecular Genetics
Cr. 3. (3-3-0). Prerequisites: Previous/concurrent enrollment in BIOL 4310 or BIOL 4313 or Consent of Instructor.
Biochemical and molecular aspects of the inborn errors of human metabolism. Particular attention will focus on laboratory methods employed for the detection of hereditary disease, including organic and amino acid analysis, and routine metabolic screening. Molecular studies will include common techniques such as DNA and RNA isolation and purification; electrophoresis or nucleic acids.

BIMS 6324:

Phytochemicals, Cancer and Disease
Cr. 3. (3-3-0).
Studies in plant derived phytochemical bioactive molecules, their preventative effects in cancer biology and disease. Cell signaling pathways and other related mechanisms in disease prevention will also be discussed.

BIMS 6332:

Studies in Intermediary Metabolism
Cr. 3. (3-3-0). Prerequisites: Previous/concurrent enrollment in BIO 4310 or BIO 4313 or Consent of Instructor.
Investigation of the interrelationships of energy utilizing and producing metabolic pathways. Consideration will be given to glycolysis, Kreb’s cycle, oxidative pathways of fatty acids and amino acids, and the pathways of lipid and sterol formation, in addition to various aspects of gluconeogenesis and the pentosephosphate shunt.

BIMS 6341:

Molecular Biology of Cancer
Cr. 3. (3-3-1).
Advanced topics in cancer at the molecular level and how this affects cellular and molecular biology.
