This course will provide students with a strong understanding of how bacterial cells are organized. In all cells, including bacteria, macromolecular structures (external and internal) are precisely assembled and often positioned at specific subcellular locations. Recent studies reveal a high level of spatial complexity involves the dynamic movement of specific proteins and protein complexes. This course will explore a wide range of cell biological topics in bacteria, ranging from the synthesis of external structures such as flagella and pili to the role of cytoskeletal proteins in the spatial localization of proteins. Most of the readings will be from the primary literature. This course is intended for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.
