授業の概要・目的 This will be a long-distance lecture course together with National Taiwan University and Tsukuba University. The lectures are composed of 1 hour lecture, and 30 minutes students' presentation of a paper related to the lecture subject. Special emphases will be on the biologists' way of thinking as well as the basic concepts on the gene/protein structure and function.
1. Logic and basic concepts in biology:How does a biologist work and what does a biologist know?
2. Methods in biology:What kinds of technique does a biologist employ?
3. Specific topics deal with the cell structure, function, and the responses against environments.
到達目標 Getting used to the lectures in English (i.e. comprehension, presentation and discussion). Students are expected to gain knowledge on modern cell and molecular biology and on presentation skills.
授業計画と内容 The lectures are scheduled on Friday, 10:30~12:00 a.m.
Course schedule:
(1) Transcription
(2) Transcription regulation in plants
(3) Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression
(4) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (I) --- development
(5) Regulation of gene expression ---Small RNA mediated gene silencing in animals
(6) Advanced technology for analyzing intercellular communication
(7) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (II)---Non-material stimulations
(8) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (III)---Oxygen
(9) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (IV)---Cell migration
(10) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (V) ---Cell death
(11) Cellular responses and adaptation to environmental factors (VI) ---Stress response
(12) Genome structure and function in prokaryotes
(13) Bacterial signaling via two component system
(14) Plant biotechnology
(15) Feedback
成績評価の方法・観点 Grading will be primarily based on attendance (80%) and presentation (20%).
Further details will be announced in the first lecture.
