Proteins: Biology's Workforce


In this fully online course, we will explore paradigms in Biochemistry and Cell Biology with a specific focus on the “central dogma” of molecular biology. We will also examine both historic and contemporary research articles and case studies. The reference text (optional) will be Alberts, The Molecular Biology of the Cell, Fifth Edition. BIOC 300 is designed for BIOC majors and minors and is recommended strongly for students with Advanced Placement in Biology and students wanting more foundation before taking other 300-level BIOC courses.

This course is open to:

  • Rice Students continuing their studies through the summer
  • Visiting students who want to take challenging academics and transfer credits to their home institution
