Integrating Cell Structure and Function
BIOL 334
Spring 2015
Section: 01  

Changes in cell shape, size, and position, and changes in cell number profoundly influence tissue and organ formation and function. By examining a range of developmental processes and structures in Drosophila, students will be challenged to consider the following questions: What are the cellular mechanisms that govern the shapes of cells during development? How do forces (stress and tension) modify cell behavior? How do cells move within and out of a tissue? How is organ size determined? Why is cell position an important factor in determining cell fate or differentiation? During the course, students will be introduced to working with Drosophila to address these questions in cell biology.
