Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Introduction to the Practices in Cell Physiology.

The following experiments of the topics are explained, performed and discussed:

- Analysis of the cell: light and electron microscopical methods
- Dynamics of the cytoplasm, of cells, of mitosis
- Detection and Identification of cytoplasmic structures:
immunofluorescence, organelle-specific dyes, micromanipulation
- Permeability of the plasma membrane
- Cell wall of plant cells: synthesis, structure and function
- The plant cell as osmotic system
- Stress tolerance of plant cells

In addition, pricnciples of scientific work and publication will be taught, especially also to support the production of Bachelor and Master Thesis.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination (30%) during the course, active cooperation during the course (40%) and oral presentation during the final seminar (30%).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Knowledge of the techniques and research fields of cell physiology as a basis for the understanding of the adaptation of cells to their ecologic situations.

Planning, realization, evaluation and publication of experimental studies.

Examination topics

Light- and electronmicroscopy, correlative microscopy, live cell imaging

immuno-techniques
