Course content

The course deals with membrane structure, transport of proteins into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), through the Golgi apparatus and out of the cell; chemical modification of proteins, different forms of endocytosis and intracellular transport; factors that regulate intracellular transport and fusion with different organelles; newly discovered pathways in the cell.

Learning outcome

The course will provide the students with knowledge corresponding to what is currently known about the subjects covered.

Admission
