Molecular Biology of the Cell Study Group: Chapter 1

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. As discussed at the last meetup, we're starting a NEW group which will be starting at Chapter 1. This is that meeting.

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.

      So sorry! It's not hard to find, we're in Kensington Market, next to Cobbs Bread, above Grafitties Bar and Grill. You can see the door on the hacklab website: http://hacklab.to/loc...­

    hey there, I was at the meeting #1 of the other group and we did one experiment (DNA extraction from a banana) . does anybody want to suggest other experiments we can do with our limited knowledge/instruments? and I think last time we were there well past 8:30 :-)

      We've still got all the stuff here at hacklab to do the DNA extraction again, if people wanna do that :-)

    The Harvard online university has a new intro-to-biology course above. If this click-through doesn't get the bio course, look for 7.00x, or search on biology, obviously... -dlj.

    Looks like I won't be able to get there until eight or eight-thirty- hopefully you're still discussing neat things then.

    • David L.

      If they exist they'll be listed on Amazon.

      I always toronto.craigslist.org around the Fall Semester. That's when the shedding of old textbooks happen for the local university students.
