General Biology I University of Tsukuba
Lectures will be given in omnibus format with reference to textbooks on molecular and cellular biology. While reviewing basic knowledge of molecular and cellular biology, broad knowledge of biology with examples of advanced research will be acquired. Students will acquire the ability to read the latest research results reported in Nature, Science, Current Biology, PNAS, etc., even in papers outside their specialized fields.The main goal is to understand the content of textbook, “Molecular Biology of the Cell”. In addition, the purpose of the lesson is to develop the current status of research and problem-solving abilities by conducting lessons including the latest information including current problems and research development.
General competence:Utilization of knowledgeCompetence for Program in Biology:Knowledge of natural scienceKnowledge of biology
Students are evaluated, according to their understanding, summarization, and presentation of the contents of the papers.
