7.38 Mechanical Cell Biology
Covers current topics in eukaryotic cell biology, with a focus on understanding how physical forces are generated in cells and how these forces organize and shape cells and tissues. Combines lectures and the analysis of the primary literature to explore concepts and experimental approaches related to forces in cell biology at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level. Also considers the journal publication process, providing insights and experience into writing a cover letter, paper submission, reviewer critique, and communicating the significance of one's research. Students taking the graduate version explore the subject in greater depth.
This class has 7.06 as a prerequisite.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 56-162.
