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 not sure where this group is at in terms of reading the text book, so I propose that we just discuss the book and DIYbio in general. If we have enough people at the right level I'm keen to do the questions at the end of Chapter 3. See you all tomorrow!

    I finally finished my CFA exam last week, which means more free time for DIYBio. I want to deliver a "metabolism lectures series" related to my work in metabolic engineering during June or July, depending on interest and availability. I'll also cover some of the computer simulation tools I use to study metabolism with MATLAB if anyone is interested.

    I won't be able to make it this week. I'm teaching a DIY petri dish workshop with some elementary students. I'll bring pictures and let you all know how it goes at the next meet up.

    Question, I'm currently working on a personal GMO project at home but am having some difficulty locating the reagents (I can find a seller, but things like puc 19 are restricted sale. Oddly enough, I can get the agrobacterium from the same site with no problems). Anyone know of a good supplier?

    What chapters do we have to finish/catch up before attending this? I haven't even got the book yet...
