BIO 256: Epigenetics (BIO 156)

Epigenetics is the process by which phenotypes not determined by the DNA sequence are stably inherited in successive cell divisions. Course will cover the molecular mechanisms governing epigenetics, ranging from the discovery of epigenetic phenomena to present-day studies on the role of chromatin, DNA methylation, and RNA in regulating epigenetics processes. Topics include: position effect gene expression, genome regulation, gene silencing & heterochromatin, histone code, DNA methylation & imprinting, epigenetics & disease, and epigenetic-based therapeutics. Prerequisite: BIO41 and BIO42 or consent of instructor, advanced biology course such as Bio104
Terms: Spr | Units: 2 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 257: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants (BIO 157)

Biochemical and molecular basis of plant growth and adaptation. Topics include: hormone signal transduction; photoreceptor chemistry and signaling; metabolite sensing and transport; dynamics of photosynthesis; plant innate immunity and symbiosis. Lectures and readings will emphasize research methods. Prerequisite: Biology core or equivalent, or consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 258: Developmental Neurobiology (BIO 158)

For advanced undergraduates and coterminal students. The principles of nervous system development from the molecular control of patterning, cell-cell interactions, and trophic factors to the level of neural systems and the role of experience in influencing brain structure and function. Topics: neural induction and patterning cell lineage, neurogenesis, neuronal migration, axonal pathfinding, synapse elimination, the role of activity, critical periods, and the development of behavior. Satisfies Central Menu Areas 2 or 3. Prerequisite: BIO 42 or equivalent.
