Molecular and Cellular Biology (2018)

Molecular and Cellular Biology focuses on the broad subject areas of molecular biology and cellular biology.

Molecular and Cellular Biology is available as a major for the BSc and the BSc(Tech). Molecular and Cellular Biology may also be included as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to the approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.

To complete Molecular and Cellular Biology as a single major for the BSc and the BSc(Tech), students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Molecular and Cellular Biology, including BIOEB101, BIOMO101, BIOMO201, BIOMO202, BIOMO203, BIOMO204, and at least 45 points from BIOMO301, BIOMO302, BIOMO303, BIOMO304, BIOMO305 or BIOMO306.

To complete Molecular and Cellular Biology as part of a double major for the BSc and the BSc(Tech) or other undergraduate degree, students must gain 120 points from the papers listed for Molecular and Cellular Biology including BIOEB101, BIOMO101, BIOMO201, BIOMO202, BIOMO203, BIOMO204, and at least 30 points from BIOMO301, BIOMO302, BIOMO303, BIOMO304, BIOMO305 or BIOMO306.

To complete a minor in Molecular and Cellular Biology, students must complete BIOMO101 and 45 points above 100 level from the papers listed below, including at least 15 points at 200 level and 15 points at 300 level.

    Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location
    BIOMO201Biochemistry18A (Hamilton)
    The aim of this paper is to familiarize students with the structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates (as fundamental molecules of life). Students will be introduced to molecular techniques used to study these molecules and gain an appreciation of how they interact in living organisms in health and d...
    BIOMO202Genetics18B (Hamilton)
    This paper deals with genetics in the widest sense from the molecular and cellular to the applied and evolutionary. Both prokaryote and eukaryote genetics are discussed with respect to DNA replication, hereditary, gene expression and control, and the role of mutations at both the DNA and chromosomal levels. The paper provides a pat...
    BIOMO203Microbiology18A (Hamilton)
    This paper will focus on microbial cell structure, function, and metabolism. Content and context will be drawn from both human and environmental examples. Students will acquire skills in microbiological laboratory techniques, data collection, data analysis, and report presentation. This paper is required for the Molecular and Cellu...
    BIOMO204Cell and Organ Physiology in Health and Disease18B (Hamilton)
    This paper integrates basic cell physiology with organ-based physiology and histology, providing students with a comprehensive understanding of the structure-function relationships in physiological processes. Intercellular communication, tissue/organ structure and systems physiology will be discussed in the context of health and di...
