Molecular and Cell Biology for Fall 2020

Organizer: Dr. Hsou-min Li

Reference: Alberts et al. Molecular Biology of the Cell 6th ed.

Evaluation:

  • A two-hour exam will be conducted in a close-book and in-class format for both the mid-term and final exams. Some instructors may also use in-class quits or homework for grading.
  • Each lecture will weight the same in your final grade.
  • Students with a final grade ≥ 70 are regarded as “pass”. Students who fail the course cannot be granted the course credits and should retake the course if the course required by their program.
