MOL 348 Cell and Developmental Biology
The mechanisms that underlie development of multicellular organisms, from C. elegans to humans, will be examined using biochemical, genetic and cell biological approaches. The course will investigate the roles that gene regulation, cell-cell communication, cell adhesion, cell motility, signal transduction and intracellular trafficking play in the commitment, differentiation and assembly of cells into specialized tissues.
Prerequisite: MOL 342 or MOL 345 is required. The course is required for concentrators.
