BIO 394 - Molecular Machines

B. Thurtle-Schmidt

How do ribosomes really synthesize proteins? How do proteins transport cargo-filled vesicles along the cytoskeleton? How do some bacteria manage to swim in solution? The answers to these questions are provided by the study of molecular machines. In this seminar class, students will analyze primary literature to learn how tiny molecular machines power so many essential biological processes

Prerequisites & Notes
