Course Objectives
We will focus on the deployment and use of key biological macromolecules throughout the cell. Topics that we will address include biological membranes and transport, cell signalling, and metabolism.

Attendance Policy
Attendance at every class meeting and laboratory session is expected. Unexcused absences from class may result in a reduction of your grade. Even one unexcused absence from laboratory will result in your dismissal from the course. Please keep in mind that only your instructor can determine what constitutes an excused absence.
