BIOL 5090 Cellular Differentiation (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This is an advanced course in cell and organ differentiation. The developmental processes by which unspecialized cells, tissues and structures achieve a more specialized adult form and function will be examined with a major emphasis on the human vertebrate. The factors and environmental signals as well as modifications in gene expression both of which strongly influence the process of differentiation will be examined. Relevant scientific articles from the current literature will be utilized in this course.


Instructor(s): Debra Mullikin-Kilpatrick

Prerequisites: BIOL 2040 and additional course work in cell and molecular biology. A course in biochemistry is strongly recommended.
