Freshman Seminar: The Cell Biology of Neurodegeneration
AS.020.101 (02)

This course will examine the underlying biology of multiple neurodegenerative disorders, ranging from the well known (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.) to the rare (Cockayne syndrome, Salla disease, etc.). For each disease, relevant cellular and molecular mechanisms important for normal functioning of the nervous system will be examined, followed by exploration of the errors that can occur in these processes and give rise to disease states. Specific cellular activities to be explored include protein folding and stability, DNA repair, and lysosomal trafficking and degradation. Popular topics in biology and neuroscience (e.g., personal genome sequencing, CRISPR-based gene editing, microbiomes) will also be covered.

Fundamentals of Drug Discovery
AS.020.384 (01)

The creation and implementation of new approaches to the drug discovery and development process is a very active area of research. Currently, only one compound out of 5,000 that enter preclinical studies becomes a drug. Moreover, the development process is time consuming, lasting more than ten years on average. The rate of failure is extremely high. It has become evident that this field is in urgent need of revolutionary changes. This course will cover drug discovery issues ranging from the identification of hits to their optimization as drug candidates. Current as well as novel and proposed approaches aimed at accelerating discovery, potency optimization, selectivity, pharmacokinetics and other drug properties will be discussed.

A Biophysical View of Biology
AS.020.382 (01)

The objective of this course is to develop in students a strong, intuitive, and physically based sense of how fundamental biological processes work—that is, the sizes, shapes, motions, interactions, and cellular functions of biological molecules. Topics will include cell and population growth, diffusion, enzyme kinetics, the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the synthesis, structure, and function of proteins and nucleic acids, least squares equation fitting, Bayesian statistics, and the fluctuation test. The biophysical constraints that dictate the form of the immune system and constraints relevant to development will be discussed.

Epigenetics
AS.020.385 (01)

Course description: This course emphasizes epigenetic regulatory mechanisms including DNA methylation, histone modifications, histone variants, non-coding RNA regulation, and chromatin remodeling, etc. We will discuss the broad impact of epigenetic regulation in various biological events, ranging from stem cell activity, small RNAs’ and long non-coding RNAs’ function, to transgenerational epigenetic inheritance and human diseases. We will mainly use recent literatures to discuss various topics. There are both students’ presentation and writing components for this course. Students will be assigned a series of papers for their presentation and faculty will meet with student presenters ahead of the time to go through the presentation content.

Cell Biology
AS.020.306 (01)

How the molecules of living systems are organized into organelles, cells, tissues, and organisms will be explored, as well as how the activities of all of these are orchestrated and regulated to produce “life”—a phenomenon greater than the sum of its parts. Considerable emphasis is placed on experimental approaches to answering these questions. Topics covered include biological membranes, cytoskeletal elements, cell locomotion, membrane and protein traffic, the nucleus, signal transduction, the cell cycle, the extracellular matrix, epithelial structure and function. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors only. Recommended Course Background: (AS.020.151 or AS.020.305) or equivalent knowledge of biomolecules or AS.020.303.

Human Anatomy
AS.020.375 (01)

This course is meant to be an introduction to human gross anatomy. It will seek to give students enough background in anatomical knowledge and vocabulary to help them in their initial training in medical school, however, it will not be a substitute for anatomy courses in medical school. It will focus on normal adult anatomy, and it will cover each of the main regions of the body – i.e., thorax, abdomen and pelvis, back and limbs, and head-&-neck. Lectures will cover descriptive and functional anatomy, ultimately leaving students with a better understanding of anatomical terminology and 3D relationships of structures within the human body, and better problem-solving skills as they begin to relate symptoms to causes, again at the gross anatomical level.

This course provides students who have taken General Biology I & II the opportunity to mentor new students in General Biology I & II. Mentors collaborate with faculty on how to lead effective sessions, help student teams complete team assignments, and generally help students understand difficult concepts and principles in biology. Mentors must have a firm command of the topics covered in biology and must meet with both faculty and students through the course of the semester. To become a mentor, students must have successfully completed AS.020.151/AS.020.152, must apply using the form on the Biology Department website, and must be accepted by the instructors. The deadline to apply is April 8th. Recommended Course Background: AS.020.151/AS.020.152

Advanced Research Lab in Cell and Molecular Biology
AS.020.361 (01)

An intensive research laboratory course on single-molecule, live-cell imaging of chromatin and epigenetic factors designed for undergraduate students with interests in biochemistry, molecular, cellular and computational biology. The course introduces the use of advanced fluorescence microscopy to visualize the single-molecule dynamic behaviors and spatial distributions of important nuclear proteins and chromatin factors in living cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model for conserved epigenetic regulators in humans. Students will learn and apply imaging and computational tools to localize and track single protein molecules in real time and calculate their diffusive parameters. Students are expected to interpret and integrate data to acquire conceptual insights on chromatin functions, e.g. how chromatin proteins, enzymes, and large protein complexes are distributed in nuclear space and time. Students will gain practical experience in yeast molecular genetics by engineering protein tags on designated factors, and evaluating protein functionality under natural levels of expression. General access to laboratory facilities, with two afternoons (~8 hours/week) mandatory. After course completion, option for post-course research in the Wu laboratory. Open to advanced sophomores or upper level students with permission of Instructor Carl Wu (wuc@jhu.edu).
