Summary

 

Molecules, Cells and Processes - BE1-HMCP

Aims

 

This course will introduce the underlying molecular basis of cellular and sub-cellular processes in cells, with special emphasis for engineers. It will discuss these parts of the underlying theory that enables an engineer to better interpret literature and models of cells. 

Topics discussed will include:

  • Molecular shape
  • Forces between molecules in 2D and 3D
  • Energy use and generation within cells
  • Regulation of cellular gene expression
  • Regulation of cellular protein synthesis
  • Description of the techniques used for detecting genes and proteins
  • Latest biotechnology techniques
