KurzbeschreibungStudents will learn about biochemical approaches to analyze cellular functions. The course consists of practical projects in small groups, lectures and literature discussions. The course concludes with the presentation of results at a poster session.
LernzielStudents will learn to design, carry out and assess experiments using current biochemical and cell biological strategies to analyze cellular functions in model systems. In particular they will learn novel imaging techniques along with biochemical approaches to understand fundamental cellular pathways. Furthermore, they will learn to assess strengths and limitations of the different approaches and be able to discuss their validity for the analysis of cellular functions.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature (review articles and selected primary literature) will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be taught in English.
