This is a discussion oriented course focusing on the general concepts of stem cell biology in various tissues from both vertebrates and invertebrates. Discussions will be led by the instructors and each student will be expected to participate actively in the discussion of the topics. Assigned readings for each topic are expected to be read before each meeting and will form the basis of the discussion. However, the topics will not be entirely confined to the material presented and students may wish to read more widely, using the assigned references as a starting point. Discussion will focus on models and concepts rather than technical details.

Coordinators: Dr. Derek van der Kooy and Dr. John Dick

With the exception of Biochemistry students, students from other departments must be registered in MMG1012H in order to take topics through the Department of Molecular Genetics. Biochemistry students should confirm with their Graduate Office to ensure our topics can count towards their module courses.
Students should choose multiple topics in order to ensure that they are able to register for topics this Fall. Indicate the priority of this course in relation to your other choices.
