The course molecular cell biology highlights molecular functioning of the eukaryotic cell, in relation to the structure of the cell.
1. Evolution of the cell and basic techniques in molecular cell biology
2. Internal organization of the cell: intracellular compartmentalization and protein sorting, vesicular transport in the secretory and endocytotic pathways, the cytoskeleton, cell division, cell cycle and apoptosis.
3. Cells in their social context: cell junctions and adhesion; the extracellular matrix and its receptors, proliferation and differentiation
