MOL 506 Cell Biology and Development

Faculty

Devenport, Schwarzbauer, Burdine, Schupbach

Cell Biology II concerns how cells assemble into functional tissues, covering the molecular 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.

Scoliosis linked to disruptions in spinal fluid flow

A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence. Found in humans and zebrafish, these mutated genes damage the cilia—tiny hair-like projections that line the spinal canal and help move the fluid — and lead to a curvature of the spine.
