KurzbeschreibungApplication of current strategies to study complex and highly regulated cellular processes during cell division and growth.
LernzielThe students learn to evaluate and to apply the current strategies to study complex and highly regulated cellular processes during cell division and growth.
InhaltDuring this Block-Course, the students will learn to (1) describe the main regulators and the mechanics of cell division and growth, (2) perform standard lab techniques and quantitate dynamic cellular processes during cell division and growth, (3) evaluate and compare experimental strategies and model systems, (4) independently search and critically evaluate scientific literature on a specific problem and present it in a seminar, and (5) formulate scientific concepts (preparation and presentation of a poster).
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.

KurzbeschreibungIndependent, guided acquisition of an overview over a defined area of research, identification of important open questions, development of an experimental strategy to address a defined question, and formulation of this strategy within the framework of a research grant.
LernzielThe students will learn to acquire independently an overview over a defined area of research, and to identify important open questions. In addition, they will learn to develop an experimental strategy to address a defined question, and to formulate this strategy within the framework of a research grant.
InhaltThe students will work in groups of two to three, in close contact with a tutor (ETH Prof or senior scientist). The overview and the small research grant will be developed independently by the students, with guidance from the tutor through regular mandatory meetings. The students will write both the overview and the grant in short reports, and present them to their colleagues.
LiteraturThe identification of appropriate literature is a component of the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be taught in english, and requires extensive independent work.
