Cellular processes are often targets for the treatment of disease. Products of cellular processes are often used for medical analysis of processes or disease states. A basic understanding of such processes is therefore of critical importance for the development and application of new tools in this field. In this course cellular processes in eukaryotic cells are studied and discussed to create a basis for research activities around such processes.
