The cell cycle and its molecular mechanisms are expounded. Students introduce related original papers in turns in the class.
The cell cycle, the ordered set of processes by which one cell grows and divides into two daughter cells. Cell growth and division is a basis of biology. Without knowing the cell cycle control, we cannot understand the uncontrolled cell division of cancers and the growth arrest of the senescent cells. The aim of this lecture is to understand molecular mechanisms of cell cycle control.
The learning results are evaluated based on exercises and reports.
