Theory module "Current Topics in Cellular Metabolism" (4202)
In this course we will discuss various topics in cellular metabolism from methods to basic research to clinical applications (such as the role of metabolism in cancer and immune therapy). There will be one lecture per day, the rest of the day will be organized in literature seminars, group discussion and individual work.
The second aim of this course is to become more familiar with primary literature. How do we read, quickly understand and compare papers? How does the publication process work? How do you write a paper (or thesis) in a clear and concise way? These are all things we will practice and discuss, using papers from the metabolism field as examples.
Lab course "Yeast Cell Biology and Imaging" (4203)
This course is for Master or advanced Bachelor students in Biology or related fields with interest in yeast cell biology and microscopy. We will work on small projects related to current research topics in the lab using yeast genetics and live cell imaging including computational and statistical analysis.
