3. Course contents *

Cell biology of animals, plants and fungi is taught on an introductory level. The course starts with the properties of molecules and proceeds into general features of membraneous organelles, mobility and cytoskeleton, cell cycle and cell signalling, to end at the principles of multicellular organization and tissue building. The textbook "Molecular Cell Biology" by Lodisch et al. is used as a basis of information but its content is adapted and elaborated where needed.
