Developmental Biology II (2019) Syllabus
発生生物学 II (2019) シラバス




Course description :
Various developmental events, such as cell fate determination, cell differentiation, morphogenesis and animal behavior will be analyzed in light of gene expression, cell-cell interaction, intracellular signaling and evolution. Classes will be run by critical reading of the primary literature and discussion.

科目の概要:
細胞運命決定、細胞分化、形態形成や個体の行動制御等の個体発生の様々な現象を、遺伝子発現調節、細胞間相互作用、細胞内情報伝達等の分子機構や進化の視点から議論し、論文講読とディスカッションを通した演習を行う。(講義)

Course purpose:
Development can be viewed as an integral of molecular and cell biological events, and also is a process though which evolutionary changes in form is generated. Through discussing how the principles and concepts of developmental biology developed and what kind of new challenges they generate, students are expected to nurture their framework in which they conduct their own work in various disciplines.

科目の目的 :
発生現象は分子細胞学的現象が「積分」されたものと捉えることができます。また、発生過程は形態変化の進化がおこる場所でもあります。この授業では、発生生物学の様々な原理や概念がどのようにして生まれ、どのような新たな問題を生み出すかを議論することを通じ、各自が自分の分野での研究の枠組みを作るのに役立ててもらうことを目指しています。

Contents:
This course will introduce basic principles and concepts of that direct developmental phenomena. Various developmental events, such as cell fate determination, cell differentiation, morphogenesis and animal behavior will be analyzed in light of gene expression, cell-cell interaction, intracellular signaling and evolution. Classes will be run by critical reading of the primary literature and discussion. Please download the paper from links below and take a look at it in advance. It is not necessary to have completely understood the paper before coming to class. This course will be conducted in English. For questions and comments in Japanese, lecturers will provide simultaneous translation service to English.

授業内容:
授業計画:この授業では個体発生を指令する様々な基本原理や概念をとりあげます。細胞運命決定、細胞分化、形態変化、行動等のイベントについて、遺伝子発現、細胞間相互作用、シグナル伝達や進化等の観点から分析します。この授業は「原著論文を読んで議論する」という形式で行います。前もって論文を以下のリンクからダウンロードし、目を通しておいてください。完全に理解する必要はありません。この授業は英語で行いますが、日本語での質問やコメントに対しては講師が同時通訳サービスを提供します。

Pre-requisites: Familiarity with basic concepts of Molecular and Cell Biology is recommended.
This course will be conducted in English. For questions and comments in Japanese, lecturers will provide simultaneous translation service to English.

履修条件:分子細胞生物学の基礎的知識があるとより楽しめるでしょう。

Grades:
To obtain credit one must attend five or more classes (of total of eight classes) . Grades (A, B, C, D) will be determined based on the extent of participation in class.
単位取得には8セッションのうち5つ以上に出席する必要があります.成績(A,B,C,D)はクラスへの参加の程度によって判定します.

Notes:
Developmental Biology II-IV is a discussion-based course involving critical reading of the primary literature. Each year, one of the three courses (Developmental Biology II, III, or IV) will be offered, with no overlap in the material used. Taking any one of the three courses will likely give you an idea what development is about. If you wish to specialize in the field of Developmental Biology, we recommend taking all three courses.
発生生物学II-IVは原著論文をネタに議論する形式で行います.毎年3つの科目のどれか(発生生物学II, IIIまたはIV)が開講され,これら3科目での使用論文の重複はありません.どの科目を履修しても発生生物学の「味見」はできるでしょう.自分で発生研究を志しているなら3科目全てを聞いてみることをお勧めします.

Reading lists for the previous years: 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
