Biology ultimately depends upon the molecular processes that occur within cells. This course continues the introduction of foundational concepts in molecular and cell biology and biochemistry begun in CMCA 500S. We begin by exploring cell biology, the movement of cellular constituents and of entire cells, how cells age, as well as how they fuel and renew themselves. Next, we apply our fundamental knowledge to questions relating to inheritance and disease. Finally, we turn our attention to technology, to provide insights into the techniques used to generate the fundamental knowledge that we study.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
