Molecular and Cell Biology for Fall 2017
Course code 3024101
Credits four ( lectures: 4 hr per week)
Organizers Dr. Hsou-min Li
Reference Alberts et al. Molecular Biology of the Cell 6th ed.
Evaluation 1. 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.
2. Each lecture will weight the same in your final grade.
3. 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.
