Course content
For the understanding of basic structure and function of cells, a current molecure cell biology, biotechnology, and bioscience are lectured in detail including the most academic achievement. Practical research techniques and listening life science in English are also introduced up to the most recent point that cells represent a miniature universe of life formed so elaborately as well as the way by which researchers have elucudared theis fact, leading to comprehens and realization of cells, which become a site of production by metabolism.
Purpose of class
