The Cell is focused
on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with specialized topics
discussed throughout the book as examples of more general principles. Aspects of
developmental biology, the immune system, the nervous system, and plant biology
are thus discussed in their broader biological context in chapters covering
areas such as genome structure, gene expression, DNA rearrangements, the plasma
membrane, cell signaling, and the cell cycle.
This lecture note covers the following topics: Cell
Structure and Function of the Organelles, Chromosome Structure and Organization,
Transport Across Cell Membranes, Receptors and Growth Factors, Signal
Transduction, Cell Culture, Introduction to Hematology.
This note explains the following topics related to Cellular and nuclear
reprogramming: Inducing pluripotency, Stem cells in animal models of
regeneration, Small RNAs – their biogenesis, regulation and function in
embryonic stem cells.
T Rodolfa, Kyle A. Gurley, Alejandro Sanchez Alvarado, Joshua E. Babiarz, Robert

microRNAs in germline differentiation, Germline stem cell niches, Lineage
analysis of stem cells, C. elegans germline stem cells and their niche.
