Molecular Biology of the Cell Study Group

This will be our last formal session from this run of the class. We may have some ad hoc sessions throughout the summer. Otherwise, we plan on starting the book from chapter 1 again in July or August.

Curious about the science behind biotech? Join a group of like-minded enthusiasts as we work through Alberts' Molecular Biology of the Cell.

Once a week, we read a section of the book and meet to discuss it for two hours. By the end, you should have a firm grasp on the vocabulary and concepts of modern molecular biology. With this foundation, you’ll be able to follow lab-based classes easier and start coming up with ideas of your own!

This session we will discuss two papers:

"Reprogramming Committed Murine Blood Cells to Induced Hematopoietic Stem Cells with Defined Factors" from 

Cell 157, pgs 549–564. Led by Chip

"Specialized role of migratory dendritic cells in peripheral tolerance induction" from The Journal of Clinical Investigation. Led by Geoff

This will be our last meeting for this round! We plan on starting a new round from chapter 1 in July or August

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
