Cell Biology IV(2.0 credits)
|Course Type||:||Specialized Courses|
|Starts 1||:||3 Spring Semester|
|Lecturer||:||Hideki SHIBATA Associate Professor|
|This course covers advanced topics in molecular cell biology, including application and methods. Students will learn how research on molecular cell biology is achieved with advanced technology in the particular areas of ion transport, membrane traffic, stem cells, biomedicines, live-cell imaging, epithelial cell biology etc.
The goals of this course are to obtain knowledge about advanced topics in molecular cell biology, including ion transport, membrane traffic, and epithelial cell biology and to understand advanced experimental methods and technologies for studying these molecular and cellular biological issues.
|Basic knowledge on molecular biology
Cell Biology I, II, and III
|(I) Ion channels: Electrophysiology, structure and function
(II) Membrane traffic: Bio-imaging and fluorescent probes
(III) Tissues and stem cells
(IV) Epithelial cell structure and communications
Review after each lecture, and work on assignments and examinations in accordance with the instructions of the instructor.
|Essential Cell Biology (5th ed.) Bruce Alberts et al. ; Molecular Biology of the Cell (6th ed.)|
|Evaluation will be based on in-class participation, assignments, and examinations.|
|Basically, lectures will be given face-to-face in a lecture room.
Depending on the situation, lectures will be given in both face-to-face lectures and online lectures.
