TM Cell and Developmental Biology

BIO-M-TM-CDB

Detailed module description - pdf

Prof. Dr. Thomas Dresselhaus, Prof. Dr. Stephan Schneuwly

Module contents
Lectures
  • Current topics in cell biology (e.g. nucleus and eukaryotic transcription; cell cycle; cytoskeleton; membranes, vesicles and protein sorting; cell-cell communication and tumor formation)
  • Current topics in development of animals (e.g. molecular mechanisms of body plan formation, homeotic genes, cell-cell communication and nervous system formation.
  • Current topics in development of plants (e.g. germline development; fertilization mechanisms; embryogenesis; leaf-, root- and seed development)
Seminar
  • Presentation and discussion of a research based topic in the field of molecular cell- and developmental biology
Module components
  1. at least two lectures in the field of cell and developmental biology (for a selection see LSF)
  2. one seminar in the field of cell and developmental biology (for a selection see LSF)

In the seminar a seminar presentation has to be held and registered in Flexnow as an ungraded study achievement (Studienleistung).
