KurzbeschreibungApplication of current strategies to study the dynamics of complex and highly regulated cellular processes.
LernzielThe students 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 standard lab techniques and quantitate dynamic cellular processes, (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.
