Anatomy and Cell Biology
off-campus site through a satellite campus or regional partner.
The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology provides education in four sub-disciplines of the anatomical sciences (cell biology, developmental biology, gross anatomy, and neurobiology) and includes prerequisite courses for professional schools and graduate studies in many areas of the health and life sciences. Graduates have wide-ranging career opportunities, particularly in the fields of biomedical and biotechnology research.
Students in Anatomy & Cell Biology programs gain essential experience and knowledge through participating in departmental research in cell and molecular biology, neurobiology and developmental biology.
- There are numerous career opportunities for Anatomy & Cell Biology graduates with the rapid growth of the biotechnology industry. The University of Saskatchewan’s program is designed to provide students with a multidisciplinary perspective on the progressive field of biotechnology.
- BMSC 220: Cell Biology
An introduction to the biology of eukaryotic cells. Topics include organization of eukaryotic chromosomes; the flow of genetic information from nucleus to cytoplasm; cellular membranes and organelles; control of cell division; and signaling between cells. Contrasts between eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic microbial cells will be discussed, as well as distinctions between plant and animal cells.
- ACB 310: Basic Human Anatomy
The anatomical organization of the human body will be examined from systemic and functional bases. The evolution and embryonic development of the human body will be considered wherever these shed light upon the organization of the human body.
- ACB 325: Advanced Cell Biology
Recent concepts in the regulation of cell growth, development and function are considered. Topics covered include regulation of gene expression, synthesis and processing of RNA and protein, cell cycle regulation, and cellular signaling mechanisms. Emphasis is placed on how these processes are regulated and how they in turn combine to regulate overall cellular activities.
