Curious about the science behind biotech? Join a group of like-minded enthusiasts as we work through Alberts' Molecular Biology of the Cell.
Once a week for 17 weeks we will read a section of the book and meet to discuss it for two hours. By the end, you should have a firm grasp on the vocabulary and concepts of modern molecular biology. With this foundation, you’ll be able to follow lab-based classes easier and start coming up with ideas of your own!
This week we'll be discussing the chapter on Cancer, chapter 20 in the 5th edition. Next week we'll be discussing some of the literature, this is the general background session to prepare.
Prerequisite / Corequisite:
Class is open to all those who are in or have had high school biology.
Required Text: You will need to get a copy of Albert's Molecular Biology of the Cell, 5th edition (Used 4th Editions are reasonably priced on Amazon, and much of the material is similar).
$10 per class session (weekly) for Meetup-Only Members
$5 per class session (weekly) for Lab Members.
Minimum of five participants.
