The course will provide a comprehensive survey of cellular signaling, describing, mechanisms of signal transduction. The lectures will detail cellular signaling from the major classes of cell surface receptors to the impact on nuclear events. The class will emphasize the integration and coordination of signaling pathways in the cell and how this impacts on the fact of the cell. Prerequisite(s): IP 842 Systems Biology , IP 843 Cellular and Molecular Biology

Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : Start of semester Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : End of semester
Day: TBA Time: TBA Place: TBA Credit: and hours by arrangement
Research performed under the direction and supervision of the respective student's advisor, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
MSCI 910 Student Seminar Pat Ryan
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : Start of semester Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : End of semester
Day : Tu Time : 12:00-12:50 Place : A303
Credit: 3
Reports of current research are made by students for fellows and staff. Presentations are followed by general informal discussion. Under certain circumstances, topics of current interest in the field are selected and reviewed by students and staff members.
MSCI 930 Molecular and Cellular Basis of Pathogenesis Lorraine Albritton
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : Start of semester Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : End of semester
Day: TBA Time: TBA Place: TBA Credit: 3
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of both viral and bacterial pathogenesis from the perspective of both host and pathogen. The lectures are intended to complement the immunology and pathophysiology lectures in IP 842 "Systems Biology" to provide a comprehensive and fundamental understanding of the concepts that govern host-pathogen interactions. Lectures will present in detail the molecular genetic, structural, and cellular mechanisms that viral and bacterial pathogens use to infect cells and tissues of the host and the subsequent disease consequences of infection. Prerequisite(s): IP 842 Systems Biology , IP 843 Cellular and Molecular Biology
MSCI 934 Techniques I - Biochemical and Cellular Methods Martha Howe
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : Start of semester Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 05/02/2014
Day : WF Time : 10:30-11:50 Place : A310
Credit: 2
The theory and practical application of commonly used techniques in biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, and structural biology are considered, including absorption and emission spectroscopy; multiple chromatographic methods for use both with and without tags; protein purification strategies; protein electrophoresis and blotting; mass spectroscopy and proteomics; NMR and X-ray crystallography; generation and use of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies; flow cytometry; light, fluorescence, and confocal microscopy; apoptosis and cell purification.

Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 09/25/2012 Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 12/11/2012
Day : Tu Time : 12-1:00 pm Place : GEB A302 Credit: 3
Reports of current research are made by students for fellows and staff. Presentations are followed by general informal discussion. Under certain circumstances, topics of current interest in the field are selected and reviewed by students and staff members.
MSCI 931 Immunity and Inflammation Elizabeth Fitzpatrick
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 08/13/2012 Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 12/14/2012
Day : M, Th Time : 10:30-11:50 am Place : GEB A315 Credit: 2
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of resistance to infection and immunity to viral and bacterial pathogens. The lectures are intended to complement the immunology and pathophysiology lectures in IP 842 Systems Biology to provide a comprehensive and fundamental understanding of the concepts that govern host-pathogen interactions. Lectures will present in detail the molecular genetic, structural, and cellular mechanisms that determine innate and adaptive immune cell activation and effector function. The literature review will use landmark papers to document research that has elucidated innate and adaptive immune mechanisms that determine resistance to infection by bacteria and viruses. At the end of the course, students will have a comprehensive understanding of innate and adaptive immunity to viruses and bacteria. Students will understand in detail the molecular genetic, structural, and cellular basis for immune response to viruses and bacteria. Combined with the information learned in Molecular and Cellular Bases for Pathogenesis of Viruses? and ?Molecular and Cellular Bases for Pathogenesis of Bacteria, students will have a comprehensive understanding of host-pathogen relationships that ultimately lead to the elimination of infectious agents or the establishment of productive infections.
MSCI 935 Techniques II - Methods for Nucleic Acids Martha Howe
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 08/22/2012 Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 12/14/2012
Day : W, F Time : 10:30-11:50 am Place : GEB A15 Credit: 2
The theory and practical application of commonly used techniques for working with nucleic acids are considered, including nucleic acid isolation, quantitation, and electrophoresis; hybridization, mini-and micro arrays; DNA sequencing; oligonucleotide synthesis, uses, PCR and qPCR; restriction and modification enzymes, and polymerases; prokaryotic and eukaryotic cloning vectors; library construction and clone detection; cDNA-expression and siRNA-silencing libraries; making transgenic mice; in vitro mutagenesis, gel retardation, footprinting, and chromatin assays.
