The Department of Cell Biology participates in teaching from undergraduate to doctoral levels. Subjects and topics include:
Undergraduate program
Cell biology: Structure and function of proteins. Glycolysis and fermentation; Cellular respiration; Membrane; Structures and intracellular transport; Mechanism of cell communication; The cytoskeleton and cell motility. The formation of gametes; Evolution of the genome in the cell; Cell cycle and division; Abnormalities in cell activity and relationship to cancer.
Molecular Biology: This course introduces the basic knowledge of genomic structure, the structure of genes at the molecular level, understanding the complexity of the genome, the role of non-coding DNA components, and the gene concepts. This course also introduces the control processes of gene expression in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, during the stages of growth, differentiation and development of the organism.
Developmental biology: Developmental factors in the reproduction of typical organisms; The process of complex transformation from primordial sex cells to mature gametes; Changes of egg and sperm during fertilization to form a zygote; Embryo development in some typical animals; Mechanisms of sex determination in animals; Stem cells and functional cell differentiation; The process of regulating gene activity in embryonic development; Mechanism of body axis formation during embryonic development in fruit flies and mammals.
Introduction to Biotechnology: Introduction to the history and development trends, basic concepts and areas of Biotechnology including red technology, blue technology, gray technology, and related white technology closer to the molecular biology of the majors of microbiology, biochemistry, cell, and genetic engineering, the application of Biotechnology for human life.
Histology: Types of tissues in the body such as epithelium, connective tissue, muscle tissue, nervous tissue; origin, distribution, structure, and function of each type of tissue in the organ in life activities;
Introduction of epigenetics: Spatial structure of chromosomes, changes on nucleotides, amino acids of histones. Mechanism of control of heterochromatin structure, true chromatin. Mechanism of genome marking, controlling gene activity according to gene dose (allele). Concepts of epigenetic and control of gene expression, DNA methylation level, histone acetylation/methylation alteration in differentiation, growth, and response to environmental influences (microenvironment); processes that control gene activity (transcription, translation) under the control of non-coding RNAs. The processes are demonstrated by techniques of molecular analysis of DNA, RNA, techniques of analysis of over/under methylation affecting the transcription and translation expression of genes.
Animal biotechnology: Issues of animal biotechnology: techniques and technologies for culturing animal cells; Techniques for creating genetically modified cells and animals; Synthesis of biologically active compounds; Assisted reproductive techniques; Animal cloning technology; Achievements and potential applications of biotechnology in the field of medicine and health care.
Tumor biology: Issues related to the maintenance and growth of tumors. Tumor research models as well as some tumor attack methods.
Seminar Stem cells: regenerative biology, application of stem cells in research, in cell therapy and in creating transgenic animals through stem cells and cloning. Stem cell-based biological assays to evaluate the ability, potency or effect of drugs or chemicals in cell differentiation.
Master program
Animal cell technology: Provides basic knowledge of practical applications to create desired products based on animal cell technology, principles of gene transfer, techniques for using animal cells. The use of cultured cells, stem cells for drug screening, chemical toxicity testing, stem cell applications in cell therapy, and regenerative medicine will be introduced and analyzed in the calendar. history and in the present period.
Cell cycle: Mechanisms that control cell division, molecules, and mechanisms of the cell cycle regulatory system, cell cycle control in organism growth, and cycle disorders cells that cause diseases, especially cancer.

Doctoral program
Experimental oncology: Practical knowledge for learners to apply in their research on cancer in animals, the development of anti-cancer drugs, and current methods of cancer diagnosis and treatment; advantages and disadvantages, and combinations in treatment methods.
Functional Histology: Histological structure related to physiological functions, providing knowledge about the interplay between tissues and organs in the body, knowledge to explain functional diseases.

Cytogenetics: A systematic introduction to genetic phenomena occurring at the cellular organizational level such as Molecular basis of cellular genetics, organization and functioning of chromosomes, genes, and genomes.
Molecular and Cellular Biology of Cancer: Interference and carcinogenesis in vivo at the molecular, cellular, and genetic levels; characteristics of cancer cells and their differences from normal cells. Mechanism of cancer metastasis, cancer research, and treatment, regulation of signaling pathways; cell cycle initiation and cell cycle progression; cellular metabolism and programmed cell death.
Cell Signaling: Knowledge related to ways of communicating between cells, primary and secondary messenger molecules; types of cell surface receptors and signaling mechanisms from extracellular to intracellular through those receptors; Intracellular signaling and nuclear response mechanisms, with emphasis on the activities of transcription factors, nuclear and steroid hormone receptors, cancer suppressors, and cell cycle regulators.
