        TEXTBOOK:
            Lecture:            Molecular Cell Biology   
         
            by Lodish, Berk, Kaiser, Krieger, Scott, Bretscher, Ploegh, and Matsudaira.
              6
th edition, W.H.Freeman & Co., New York, ©2007 ISBN: 0-7167-7601-4.

MAKEUP EXAMS:
          University policy on makeup exams:  they can only be offered:
         
1. if a student has participated in an activity approved by the Dean's Policy Council
 
                      (varsity, debate, etc., trip)
          
2. if a student has attended a field trip of another course
          
3. if a student has been confined to the Health Center
            
No other excuses will be accepted unless you see Dr. Glaser or Dr. Mallery before
            an exam date.  The make-ups will be essay type or oral exam and will  have a degree
            of difficulty appreciably greater than normal.

GRADING:
The lecture grade is derived from (2) lecture exams (100 points each) given throughout the semester and worth a total of 200 points, and a 3rd test-combined-final exam valued at 200 points. The final exam of the course is composed of material since the 2nd testand cumulative questions covering the entire course.  The 3rd test and the final exam will be given together at the designated time for the final exam.
Total lecture points = 400 points.
There will be random extra credit quizzes worth variable points added to the total.

Academic Ethics:
         Cheating will NOT be tolerated.  It affects every student directly and it is the
         responsibility of every student to sign the Honor Code and to UPHOLD the HONOR
         CODE. The Biology Department has adopted  the policy that upon establishment of
         cheating or acquiescence in it the penalty shall be FAILURE of the course and/or any
         penalties the Honor Council may impose.
