For students attending the course Cell-, Stem Cell and Developmental Biology (12 hp) course code 1BI037

First the course focuses on intracellular mechanisms by which a cell function and replicate (from DNA through RNA to protein), this is then complemented by examining the mechanisms that facilitate development of a multicellular organism (growth, interactions between cells, and cell specialization). This course gives a foundation in cell biology, and an introduction to stem cell biology and developmental biology.
