Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Objective: Molecular biology is the study of molecular basis of biological activity and is the basis of life science (including basic and applied research). The objective of this class is to achieve an in-depth understanding of molecular biology.
Outline: During Lessons 1–7, the molecular mechanisms of well-known biological processes are discussed from the viewpoint of molecular biology. During Lessons 9–15, life and biological activity are discussed from a quantitative point of view, introducing another aspect of molecular biology. 
Class Schedule Lesson 1: Fermentation — From the viewpoint of molecular biology #1
Lesson 2: Fermentation — From the viewpoint of molecular biology #2
Lesson 3: Alcohol tolerance/intolerance — From the viewpoint of molecular biology
Lesson 4: Recombinant protein production — From the viewpoint of molecular biology
Lesson 5: Fermentation — From the viewpoint of molecular biology #3
Lesson 6: Pathogenic Escherichia coli and toxins — From the viewpoint of molecular biology
Lesson 7: Viral infection — From the viewpoint of molecular biology
Lesson 8: Review of Lessons 1–7 (comprehension test; face-to-face in ENG 115 lecture room)
Lesson 9: Size and Geometry — From a quantitative point of view #1
Lesson 10: Size and Geometry — From a quantitative point of view #2
Lesson 11: Size and Geometry — From a quantitative point of view #3
Lesson 12: Size and Geometry — From a quantitative point of view #4
Lesson 13: Concentrations and Absolute Numbers — From a quantitative point of view
Lesson 14: Rates and Durations — From a quantitative point of view
Lesson 15: Information and Errors

Lesson 16: Term-end examination (face-to-face in ENG 115 lecture room)
