Recent advances in molecular cell biology and molecular genetics in eukaryotes and prokaryotes including control of gene expression, RNA processing, oncogenesis and other relevant topics. Prerequisites: BI 270 and CH 214 or the equivalent.

Animal Behavior

Course Prefix: 
BI
Course Number: 
322
Course Credits:
