Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.
The course introduces molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells; how they organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues and organs in multicellular organisms; and how their misbehavior contributes to disease. The learning outcomes below indicate the topics and skills that students should master upon completion of the course.
