This is the second
course in the core program for Biology majors.
When you have completed this course and organic
chemistry you will be able to undertake upper
division coursework in the biological sciences.
Course content, assignments, and lab work are
comparable to that of your transfer institution
and designed to prepare you for upper division
work in the sciences. The basic principles you
study in Cell Biology will be applicable in all
biologyrelated professions including medicine,
agriculture, biotechnology, animal behavior, and
Wilson wrote the above statement more than 50
years ago; recent advances in molecular biology
techniques have made it possible to look for these
answers in the cell. Cell Biology is becoming
the organizing theme for much of the first-year
medical curriculum. On the surface, living organisms
appear widely disparate, however they share more
similarities than they have differences when viewed
at the cellular level.
