Molecular Biology of the Cell Study Group

Don’t remember much from high school biology? What you do remember seems light-years behind where biology is today?

Join us as we go through Albert’s Molecular Biology of the Cell textbook.

Inspired by the BioCurious study group for the same, we're going to be working through the book, working together to improve our knowledge of biology!

Every month, we read one chapter and discuss it at the meetup.

The table of contents for the 4th and 5th edition are almost identical, so we don't anticipate big problems if people have different versions. That said, Biology has come a long ways since 2002 (when the 4th edition was published). Of course, it may be interesting for us to contrast the two books.

One useful thing to note is that the 4th edition is available for search on the NIH website by agreement with the publisher: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK21054/ . The agreement does not include browsing, so you can only read the sections that come up in a given search.

    I'm postponing this meeting by an hour to 8pm to avoid conflict with the Intro to iGEM event. We'll be doing a review of Chapter 4, but no fear, if you haven't read that far, you're still welcome to come and learn with us!

    I've been reading the book on my own. It'd be interesting to meet some other people with the same curiosities. Is there a chapter I should brush up on?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
