Fluid mechanics is a discipline that is concerned with the behavior of liquids and gases at rest or in motion. This course will introduce the fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics.

Molecular biology deals with nucleic acids and proteins and examines how these molecules regulate proper growth, division and development in cells. In this course, students will learn the molecular mechanisms of DNA replication, repair, transcription, protein synthesis, and gene regulation in different tissues. The techniques that revealed these mechanisms and the experiments that are used to distinguish these mechanisms will also be in the course. Protein structure and function, and protein interactions with nucleic acids will also be discussed.
