BIOL 59500U Cell Biology of Plants
Session Offered:Fall Credit 3.0
This lecture course, aimed at upper division undergraduates and graduate students, will cover aspects of cellular biology which are fundamental to our understanding of plant growth, differentiation and development. The course content assumes that the student will have a strong background in the cell biology of eukaryotes, and some exposure to basic problems in plant biology. Topics to include: techniques of modern cell biology; cell division and cell cycle regulation; cytoplasmic streaming and intracellular motility; structure and function of peroxisomes, vacuoles, cell walls, and plastids; protein import, cell-cell communication and plasmodesmata.
