7.06 Cell Biology

Class Info

Presents the biology of cells of higher organisms. Studies the structure, function, and biosynthesis of cellular membranes and organelles; cell growth and oncogenic transformation; transport, receptors, and cell signaling; the cytoskeleton, the extracellular matrix, and cell movements; cell division and cell cycle; functions of specialized cell types. Emphasizes the current molecular knowledge of cell biological processes as well as the genetic, biochemical, and other experimental approaches that resulted in these discoveries.

This class has 7.03, and 7.05 as prerequisites.

7.06 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by A. Martin and F. Solomon.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-270.
