7.61 Eukaryotic Cell Biology: Principles and Practice
Emphasizes methods and logic used to analyze structure and function of eukaryotic cells in diverse systems (e.g., yeast, fly, worm, mouse, human; development, stem cells, neurons). Combines lectures and in-depth roundtable discussions of literature readings with the active participation of faculty experts. Focuses on membranes (structure, function, traffic), organelles, the cell surface, signal transduction, cytoskeleton, cell motility and extracellular matrix. Ranges from basic studies to applications to human disease, while stressing critical analysis of experimental approaches. Enrollment limited.
This class has no prerequisites.
7.61 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Krieger.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in E25-117.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
