BIO 356E BIO 356E. Epigenetics and Epitranscriptomics. 3 Hours.
Explore epigenetic mechanisms that involve covalent modifications of the three major biomolecules: DNA, RNA or proteins in the context of gene expression and genome stability. Examine how environmental and intrinsic factors regulate these mechanisms to impact normal and diseased cell functions, particularly as they relate to human health, aging, and behavior. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Only one of the following may be counted: Biology 327E, 337 (Topic: Epigenetics), 356E. Prerequisite: Biology 325 with a grade of at least C-.
