Description
This course will be devoted to a discussion of the current state of our understanding of cell structure and function. Eukaryotic cells will be emphasized with particular attention to animal cells. However, prokaryotic cells will be discussed for comparative purposes. Course material will emphasize the experimental basis for our understanding of cell biology and the relationship between structure and function. Most of the techniques to be considered will involve biochemical and molecular biological approaches used in the study of cell function. Thus the course will assume a familiarity with the principles of biochemistry covered in the prerequisites and will not repeat this material. Topics will include membranes, the nucleus, mitochondria and chloroplasts, the cytoskeleton, cell motility, growth and division, endocytosis and exocytosis, and selected topics on the cellular biological aspects of cancer and the immune system.
