Learning Outcomes

With the participation in this course, the student will know the basics of cellular morphology and functioning. Also, the student will learn the basics of gene expression mechanisms in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. The student will learn methods for measuring gene expression and cellular structures. Finally, the students will learn how to write reports on cell biology related issues.

Instructions for students on how to achieve the learning outcomes

Grades 1-2: define what are model organisms been used in the biologic experiments and methods and their application in research. Grades 3-4- can describe model organisms, biologic experiments, methods and what is the need of specific methods for solving biological problems. Also describe some of the methods and applications for health and biology, and their benefits and review the paper. Grade 5- list basic cell and molecular biology methods used in these disciplines and use specific method for research. Review the paper to find hypothesis, model organisms, methods used results of one of the peer reviewed article in these fields.

Assessment scale:

Evaluation scale passed/failed will be used on the course
