LC 209 - Learning Community: Organic Chemistry of the Cell
Three Credits Fall and Spring Semesters
Students select, read, and critique primary literature that ties together topics concurrently learned in Cell Biology and Organic Chemistry II in order to develop their abilities to understand and critically analyze the literature. The seminar culminates with student teams proposing an experiment or series of experiments that address a specific area of interest on the boundary between organic chemistry and cell biology. These proposals are presented in both written and oral forms, allowing fellow students to evaluate and expand upon the proposed ideas.
