The molecular genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry of viruses, including attachment to, entry into, and synthesis and assembly inside of host cells. Through lecture, discussion, and laboratory, the course emphasizes the experimental basis of biologists’ understanding of the molecular details of DNA replication, transcription, translation, gene regulation, protein localization, cell division, and signal transduction, and how viruses manipulate, subvert, and exploit these cellular processes. Lecture/discussion.

Prerequisite: 1) Any 300-level course in Molecular Biology and 2) Chemistry & Biochemistry 251 or consent of instructor; Biology 380 or Molecular Biology 310 and Chemistry & Biochemistry 382 strongly recommended.
