MOL 520 Advanced Topics in Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cell Biology**
The organization of intracellular components contributes to cell functionality. This course will focus on how intracellular components are organized, mechanisms of reorganization during various processes, and how changes in this organization impact cell behaviors. The dynamics of forming complex multicellular tissues will also be examined. Topics include spatial-temporal changes during cell growth and division, cell motility, polarity, shape changes, and cell differentiation using examples from both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Analysis of techniques used to study cell architecture will be covered.
Prerequisites: MOL 342, 345 and 348 or permission of instructor.
