Course Content:

The Cell Biology course is required to each undergraduate student in the International Class. This course is desired to teach in English for the total 54 teaching hours in every spring semester. The goal of this course is to teach for the students who will learn the knowledge on the fundamental units of life, Cells, it is to cell biology, that we must look for an answer to the questions of what life is and how it works. Start from learning the introduction to cells, with deeper, comprehensive understanding of the structure, function, behavior, and evolution of cells; begin to tackle the grand historical problems of life, its mysterious origin, its spectacular diversity, its invasion of every feasible habitat. After learning the cell structure and function of the cell membrane, students will learn how cells obtain energy from food. How proteins can be sort and transport? What can happen to the cell communication? What is the function of cytoskeleton? What is about the cell division cycle? At the last, students will be touched by the cell communities. In combining with the experimental course, students will learn how to study cells experimentally, what should be done, or with which kind of strategies to solve the problems in cells.

Students are required to accomplish the study of this course in English. They should complete their homework, examinations, quizzes, discussions, etc., in English. Every year, we invite the renowned professor(s) from overseas giving seminars to the students, thus, to broaden students’ thoughts and knowledge.
