    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • With Molecular Cell Biology (by Harvey Lodish) adapted as our required textbook, this newly developed all-English course provides an introduction to the experiments used by scientists in the world, to show how important discoveries were made that led to the formation of today’s key concepts. With accelerated understanding of molecular cell biology, fundamental principles are emerging from the field of biology to guide important areas such as human disease and medicine. This course strives to present these principles clearly and systematically though the supporting experimental evidence and logically derived key concepts. The final exams of this course will emphasis on testing the ability of students to connect advanced concepts and all available resources to independently solve practical problems, not recital of facts or phrases.
      The hallmark of this course is the emphasis of experimental support for the development of key concepts, presented in class by connecting figures from the textbook with detailed explanation. Another feature of this course is the in-class quizzes at the end of each chapter to test student understanding by analyzing real experimental data to answer related questions. The third feature of this course is to improve student communication and independent study skills though in-class presentation of selected topics. Lastly, this course is accompanied with a course home and a publisher-provided website with ample resources such as video clips, practice questions and detailed explanations to facilitate student study.
      This course is suitable for all students who wish to have a fundamental understanding of molecular cell biology.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      1.Master the basic contents and concepts of molecular cell biology;
      2.Cultivate independent learning, critical thinking and judgment
      3.Understanding the principles of conducting scientific research with logical thinking and basic methods
      4.Pave the way for more specialized courses of study and research work in the fields related to biology.
