Name des Moduls: Current aspects and methods of plant cell biology Anzahl der Leistungspunkte
(LP): 4
Modulart (Pflicht- oder Wahlpflichtmodul): Wahlpflichtmodul
The lecture will focus on current research and methods in the cell
biological analysis of plant growth and development. The topics
discussed will be cellular and sub-cellular functions of plant
hormone biosynthesis, transport and response pathways,
membrane trafficking and recycling pathways, protein
degradation pathways, control of cytoskeletal organisation and
cell wall organisation during cell division, cell elongation, cell
and tissue polarity establishment. Furthermore relationships
between epidermal patterning/cell-fate specification pathways,
cell division, cell and tissue polarity establishment will be
discussed as well as inter- and intracellular communication
during tissue polarity establishment.
The practical work will involve the cell biological and
physiological analysis of plant cell division, elongation, cell and
tissue polarity. It will be oriented along current research
questions addressed in the Grebe group. Methods to be used will
among others include live imaging of cytoskeletal elements, cell
division and cell polarity by employing fluorescent proteins and
confocal laser scanning microscopy, fluorescence recovery after
photobleaching and immunofluorescence localization methods.
Interaction of visualized proteins will be analysed by proteinprotein interaction methods and will be verified in vivo by
phenotypic cell biological analysis of single and double mutants.
Inhalte und Qualifikationsziele des Moduls:
The seminar will discuss in detail original scientific articles about
current topics in plant cell and developmental cell biology.
As such, the module will provide students with a basic
understanding of current research questions and methods in plant
cell biology. The students will be familiarized with the theoretical
background, scientific approach and experimental methods in
plant cell and developmental cell biology. The module will teach
students specialized knowledge and capabilities in the cell
biological analysis of biological processes; as such it forms a
central part of the Masters course when intending to specialize on
genetics, molecular and cellular biology.

In particular:
- students will learn how to read and critically evaluate original
scientific literature in English.
- students will learn how to extract the essential points from
original scientific literature.
- students can discuss scientific questions in writing in a concise
- students can present their work to a scientific audience using
appropriate media and deal with questions and/or comments in a
scientific discussion about their topic.
- students can ask concise, to-the-point questions about possible
future research directions to follow up a given problem.
