Course Detail

RNA Worlds


Non-protein-coding ribonucleic acids (RNAs) serve as genomes, catalysts, adaptors, regulators, structural components, and evolutionary substrates to control a diverse range of biological processes in all three domains of life.  In this seminar course, discussions of primary literature and subsequent writing assignments reveal and explore our current understanding of the evolution and roles of non-coding RNAs.


Successful completion of BIO 201 or permission of the instructor is required.
