BIO/04 - Plant Physiology
Teaching is organised as follows:
The cell biology course (I and II) focuses on the main features of the prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell, on structure and function of sub-cellular compartments, on cell division and cytological techniques. The origin of life on Earth and the origin of the cells will also be considered in this course.
The laboratory will support the understanding of the theory and will enable the students to use optical microscope and prepare simple experiments.
The flow of information: Transcription and translation. The protein synthesis. Targeting to different compartments and vescicles. Cellular signalling mechanisms. The cell cycle. Mitosis and meiosis. Cell death and apoptosis. Cancer cells. Viruses.
Laboratory: microscopy techniques.
Preparation of a scientific report (lab experience).
Open question and multiple choice test plus oral examination (if requested by the teacher).
