Course objectives
The course covers an overview of new and modern methods involved in molecular and cell biology research. It covers mainly molecular biology (regulation of gene expression, human genome, gene therapy, and cell biology (stem cells and cell therapy, cytoskeleton and molecular motors, cell cycle, apoptosis and malignant cell transformation). This information will help to better understand to new scientific topics in biology.
