Biology of the cell:

Proteins: Structural motifs, cell biology of cell compartmentation in normal and infected cells, cell targeting, cell signaling cascades and regulatory services, importance to development, cytoskeleton, cell adhesion, translation and post-translational modification, translational repression (viruses, spermatogenesis, iron metabolism), mechanisms of intracellular protein distribution, endosymbiont hypothesis, mitochondria, chloroplasts, cell cycle, steroid hormones and receptors, sex determination (Drosophila, human), X-chromosome inactivation, dosage compensation.

Methods in cell and developmental biology:

Protein analysis, Western blot, microscopic in situ localization of proteins, gene isolation and sequencing, Southern blot, RNA isolation and RT-PCR, reporter gene expression detection and protein expression detection with immunohistology on embryos. A protocol of the experiments to be performed is required.

Qualification Goals

Acquisition of in-depth fundamentals (theoretical, experimental) of parasitology, cell and developmental biology.

Mechanistic insights into the functioning of cell components as well as communication between cells will be provided. The underlying processes are furthermore presented in relation to their importance for the development of animal organisms as well as to their relevance in parasite-host interaction including immunological aspects. The methodological approach will be explained. The aim is to provide conceptual and practical handling in the presentation of molecular processes in this context. In the practical courses, students are familiarized with the methods of evaluation necessary for documentation and interpretation of the results, in addition to conducting experiments.
