This group of web pages provides basic information about cell biology topics. Many of the photos are taken from texts used by our students. These are used as supplemental handouts and guides for the discussions in our lectures. Most of these topics focus on structure/function correlations. They are not intended to be comprehensive as they correlate with biochemistry lectures. However, we hope they include starting points for your study of Cell biology.
- membrane architecture
- Nuclear organization
- transport and sorting
- cell powerhouses
- Microtubules and Cilia structure and dynamics
- Intermediate filament structure
- microtubule dynamics
We hope that this information is useful as you study these concepts throughout your basic science and systems courses.
