Course Description:
To understand biological materials and systems and design new ways to repair or replace them, it is imperative to understand their cellular and molecular components and functions. Cell and Molecular Biology form the foundation of biotechnology and biomedical industry today. This course covers a detailed analysis of the structures, mechanisms and molecules that control cell function, proliferation and differentiation as well as the changes that lead to pathological conditions. It also teaches, both in master and laboratory classes, modern molecular techniques to analyze cell function. PROGRAMME: 1. Chemical components of the cell 2. Membrane Structure 3.
