This course is for MSc students in Biology.
Coordinator: Prof.dr. A. Briegel
This course is about advanced cell biology. The course will cover 6 different topics which will all be introduced by one of the lecturers. The topics of this course are: Cytoskeleton, Energy, Cell cycle, Cell signaling, Cell envelope, and DNA/nucleus. Subsequently research papers about each topic are handed out for students to review in groups. After preparation, the selected topics will be presented by these groups to all students and teachers. Special emphasis will be on comparing bacteria to eukaryotes.
Expand theoretical knowledge on fundamentals of cell biology. Learn to critically read and understand experimental research papers on these subjects.
