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're discussing chapter 23 in the 5th edition, on how stem cells work in the body with a brief look at stem cells in biotech. This chapter is not in the print edition, but is on a CD that comes with the textbook.
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
$10 per class session (weekly) for Meetup-Only Members
