BI 533 Virus Infections & Cellular Transport (Fall: 3)
BI304 or BI414 or permission of the instructor.
Satisfies the advanced experience requirement for the Biology major.
This advanced biology course is focused on the intracellular traffic of
macromolecules to different organelles inside the cell, the transport signals,
the receptors and pathways. In addition, during the course we will analyze
how different major human viruses (including HIV, human papillomaviruses,
adenoviruses, hepatitis B virus, herpes simplex virus, vesicular stomatitis
virus) exploit the intracellular transport pathways of host cells during
their viral infections and the transformation processes leading to different
types of cancer. Students will be exposed to both lectures and analysis
and discussion of recent research papers.
