Molecular Biology of the Cell

2015

Cells are the functional units of life and cell biology explores the complex processes that regulate their activity. As such, cell biology is a mix of disciplines that range from computations to imaging living organisms.

The aim of this course (theory and practice) of 4 weeks is to attract an international group of students (Master students and young PhD students) to this research area by bringing together leading scientists for a series of state-of the-art lectures and cutting edge practical sessions. The practical course provides training in cell culture of transfected and infected cells, in vitro reconstitution of cellular functions, gene inactivation, and introduces students to cutting edge techniques of live imaging. Every week a specific theme is tackled and talks and experiments alternate.
