Class Objectives
/Class Outline
All living things are made of cells. This lecture will focus on the cell,  whose origin and evolution, ultra structures, divergence or common of the mitotic apparatus, mechanism of cell cycle, nuclear-cyctoplasm transport and expression of the protein function. Four experts in those areas will give the lecture three to four times in this lecture. All students who register in this class must participate in discussion and make presentations concerning the three subjects.
