Application of current strategies to study complex and highly regulated cellular processes during cell division and growth.
The students learn to evaluate and to apply the current strategies to study complex and highly regulated cellular processes during cell division and growth.
During 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.
Documentation and recommended literature (review articles and selected primary literature) will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / Besonderes
