AbstractThe lecture provides an introduction to the function and regulations of cells.
ObjectiveIntroduction to the function and regulation of cells
ContentThe lecture introduces a basic understanding of the structure, organization, function and regulation of the cell. The lecture is divided into two main sections:
Part 1: Cell Biology of Prokaryotes, evolution, populations
This section covers the general principles of the structure and regulation of prokaryotic cells, and explains the genetics and the evolution of bacteria.
Part II: Unifying concepts in Eukarya
This part of the lecture gives a broad introduction into the general structure of eukaryotic cells and illustrates key concepts such as intracellular architecture, transport mechanisms and the regulation of gene expression in eukaryotes.
Lecture notesThe newly conceived lecture is supported by scripts.
LiteratureThe lecture is supported by scripts. Furthermore, the textbook "Molecular Biology of the Cell", Alberts et al. 6th edition, Taylor and Francis, and "Brock Biology of Microorganisms", Madigan et al. 15th edition, Pearson can be used as support for the lecture.
