MOL 506 Cell Biology and Development
Cell Biology II concerns how cells assemble into functional tissues, covering the molecualar components and fundamental concepts in cell communication, adhesion, shape, division, and differentiation. Development covers the basics of developmental biology, focusing on important concepts and model systems. Primary literature will be used to introduce seminal works and classic approaches, modern experimental techniques, and outstanding questions in the field. Students will learn the basis of a good paper, to read critically, and to think beyond the reading.
