Cellbiology, Animal and Plant Physiology


The separate courses includes lectures, seminars, and practical laboratory work. The Cellbiology course comprises comprehensive theoretical knowledge of the most central parts of modern Molecular Cell Biology. The course also covers the concept of malignant cell growth and provides examples of molecular mechanisms behind tumor progression. The Animal and Plant Physiology course focus on multicellular animals and vascular plants. Different organism levels, from molecular to physiological, are integrated. Structure and function of animal organ and organ systems are considered in the following context; circulation, respiration, nervous systems, endocrine systems, excretion, nutrition, and developmental biology. Concerning plants there is special emphasis on photosynthesis, cell walls, anatomy, growth and flowering.
