Cellular Structure

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Cellular functioning, movement, and communication rely on the cytoskeleton, a large internal network of protein filaments embedded in the cytosol and anchored to the cell membrane.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the composition and function of the cytoskeleton, mechanisms of molecular transport, modes of cell communication, and second messengers.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology and chemistry.

Very useful
By Danae J. on 11. April 2023 for Nucleus and Ribosomes

Great material easy to learn good pictures …..thank you so much

not organized
By Chen A. on 28. February 2023 for Active Transport – Transport Across Cell Membranes

very confused and not organized I feel like its too messy and i can't catch the points

Questions not aligned with talk.
By Arnold C. on 09. December 2022 for Cellular Structure

I am enjoying the lectures. I have two, very minor issues. 1. They are a bit too "granular". Some are so short as to prevent you from digesting the material as it is presented. 2. On several occasions, the questions were not covered in that segment but rather in the next!

Very useful, clear explanation, excellent method. Thank you!

Thank you, Dt. Cornwall, for this chapter!!! It was very useful and finally, with the help of your tips, mnemonic and your awesome teaching style, I could understand the process!
