10.540 Intracellular Dynamics
Covers current models and descriptions of the internal cell dynamics of macromolecules due to reaction and transport. Two major areas will be explored: the process of gene expression, including protein-DNA interactions, chromatin dynamics, and the stochastic nature of gene expression; and cell signaling systems, especially those that lead to or rely on intracellular protein gradients. This class is intended for graduate students or advanced undergraduates with some background in cell biology, transport, and kinetics. An introductory class in probability is recommended.
10.540 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by N. Maheshri.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
