Students undertake investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIOC 200: Applied Biochemistry

Enrollment limited to MD candidates. Fundamental concepts of biochemistry as applied to clinical medicine. Topics include vitamins and cofactors, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids and nucleotides, and the integration of metabolic pathways. Clinical case studies discussed in small-group, problem-based learning sessions.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2 | Grading: Medical School MD Grades

BIOC 202: Biochemistry Bootcamp

Open to first year Biochemistry students and to other PhD students with consent of instructor. Hands-on, week-long immersion in biochemical methods and practice, high-throughput sequencing and data analysis, theory and application of light microscopy, and computational approaches to modern biological problems.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

BIOC 205: Molecular Foundations of Medicine

For medical students. The course examines the impact of molecular biology on medicine. Topics include DNA structure, replication, recombination, and repair; gene expression by transcription and translation; biotechnology; and genomics. Medical relevance is illustrated by patient presentations and small group discussions of articles from the medical literature.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical School MD Grades

BIOC 215: Frontiers in Biological Research (DBIO 215, GENE 215)

Students analyze cutting edge science, develop a logical framework for evaluating evidence and models, and enhance their ability to design original research through exposure to experimental tools and strategies. The class runs in parallel with the Frontiers in Biological Research seminar series. Students and faculty meet on the Tuesday preceding each seminar to discuss a landmark paper in the speaker's field of research. Following the Wednesday seminar, students meet briefly with the speaker for a free-range discussion which can include insights into the speakers' paths into science and how they pick scientific problems.
