BIOL 772 Gene Expression
The molecular biology of gene expression in eukaryotes: A study of the structure of genes and the molecular mechanisms used by cells to control and regulate gene expression. Emphasis on enzymatic mechanisms related to transcription, translation, post-transcriptional and post-translational modifications, and epigenetics. This course is offered at the 600 and 700 level with additional assignments at the 700 level. Not open to students with credit in BIOL 672. Prerequisite: BIOL 350 or BIOL 360, or consent of instructor. A course in biochemistry is recommended.
Molecular Biosciences is an interdisciplinary group of faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who perform cutting edge research across a wide range of areas , including biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, bioinformatics, cancer biology, genetics, genomics, immunology, microbiology, virology, neurobiology, molecular, cellular and developmental biology. Our researchers investigate fundamental biological and biomedical problems on all levels, from molecules to cells to organisms. Our research labs collaborate to solve complex questions using a range of approaches, and make use of the world-class core facilities at KU. The Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Kansas is an excellent environment for research and graduate training in biology.
