551-0126-00LGrundlagen der Biologie II: Zellen Information 6 KP5GK. Weis, F. Allain, Y. Barral, W.‑D. Hardt, U. Kutay, M. Peter, I. Zemp
KurzbeschreibungDie Vorlesung vermittelt eine Einführung in die Funktion und Regulation von Zellen.
LernzielEinführung in die Funktion und Regulation von Zellen
InhaltDie Lehrveranstaltung vermittelt ein grundlegendes Verständnis von der Struktur, Organisation, Funktion und Regulation der Zelle. Die Vorlesung ist in zwei Hauptteile gegliedert:
Teil 1: Zellbiologie der Prokaryonten, Evolution, Populationen
Dieser Abschnitt erläutert die generellen Prinzipien des Aufbaus und der Regulation von prokaryontischen Zellen, und erklärt die Genetik und Evolution von Bakterien.
Teil II: Vereinheitlichende Konzepte in Eukarya
Dieser Vorlesungsteil gibt eine breite Einführung in die generelle Struktur von eukaryontischer Zellen, und vermittelt wichtige Konzepte, die den intrazelluläre Aufbau und Transport und der Regulation der Genexpression in Eukaryonten betreffen.
SkriptDie neu konzipierte Vorlesung wird durch Skripte unterstützt.
LiteraturDie Vorlesung wird durch Skripte unterstützt. Ausserdem kann das Lehrbuch "Molecular Biology of the Cell", Alberts et al. 6th edition, Taylor und Francis, und "Brock Biology of Microorganisms", Madigan et al. 15th edition, Pearson, als Unterstützung für den Vortrag verwendet werden. "

KurzbeschreibungApplication of current experimental strategies to study the dynamics of complex and highly regulated cellular processes.
LernzielIn this course, students will
- learn what principles govern cellular dynamics and how these are regulated.
- learn to evaluate and to apply current strategies to study the dynamics of complex and highly regulated cellular processes
InhaltDuring this Block-Course, the students will learn to
(1) describe the important mechanisms and regulators of dynamic processes in cells,
(2) perform experimental techniques to quantify dynamic cellular processes,
(3) evaluate and compare experimental strategies and model systems,
(4) formulate and present scientific concepts in an oral presentation.

Topics discussed will include
- mobility in the cell (passive and active)
- compartmentalization (by membranes and via phase separation)
- examples of cell biological processes dependent on mobility and compartmentalization.

Students will work in small groups in individual labs on one research project (8 full days of practical work; every group of students will stay in the same lab during the entire course). The projects are close to the actual research carried out in the participating research groups, but with a clear connection to the subject of the course.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature (review articles and selected primary literature) will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be taught in english.

KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to the diversity of current RNA-research at all levels from structural biology to systems biology using mainly model systems like S. cerevisiae (yeast), mammalian cells.
LernzielThe students will obtain an overview about the diversity of current RNA-research. They will learn to design experiments and use techniques necessary to analyze different aspects of RNA biology. Through lectures and literature seminars, they will learn about the burning questions of RNA research and discuss approaches to address these questions experimentally. In practical lab projects the students will work in one of the participating laboratories. Finally, they will learn how to present and discuss their data in an appropriate manner. Student assessment is a graded semester performance based on individual performance in the laboratory, the written exam and the project presentation.
SkriptRelevant material from the lectures will be made available during the course via the corresponding Moodle page.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature will be provided at the beginning and during the course.
