This course will explore the history of cell biology and the experiments that taught us what we know today. We will read primary literarure about most organelles to study their structure and function, and students will choose one function of the cell to write a mini-review about. We will also spend some time working hands-on with cells and microscopy data, although this is not a lab course.
Course evaluations are based on attendance, punctuality and meeting deadlines, respect for peers, academic honesty, assignments, final project, and participation in and preparation for class discussions. If you feel you are falling behind on material, it is important that you use the TA and/or professor office hours. You are responsible for contacting me about making up work that you have missed. I will not email you if you missed class to tell you what you missed.
On the last day of the class, you will turn in a portfolio of all of your work, so save everything. Please include a table of contents and your work in sequential order according to the dates they were turned in. Please include the copies of your work that contained my feedback.

2nd edition is cheaper and is okay to use, but the information is 10 years old, so if you’re going to use it seriously as a reference, the extra money is worthwhile.
