Prerequisite: MOL BIO 203 or MOL BIO 204 or NEURBIO 206
Same as BIOCHEM 225.
Restriction: Graduate students only.
Taught once every two years in Fall Quarter. The last time NEURBIO 230 was taught was in Fall 2019.
Focuses on the role of chromatin/nuclear structure organization (histone and DNA modification, chromatin remodeling, higher order chromatin structure and nuclear organization) on gene regulation, DNA replication and repair, relevant to development, metabolism, learning and memory, and human disease.
