Learning Goal for MCDB3120 The overall goal of this course is to give you a “Feeling for the Cell”. The ‘feeling’ will be developed by first examining individual cellular components, then by considering how they work together inside the cell, and finally by looking at how cells adapt to changing environments both as individuals and as parts of cellular communities (tissues, organs etc,). Where appropriate, classical experiments will be discussed in detail .
