Study Notes

Lecture 1: Introduction to Signalling in Multicellularity

  • Primary focus: Introducing the concept of signalling in multicellularity and its importance

Signalling in Multicellularity

  • Function: Enables cells to communicate and coordinate their behaviour to form and maintain a multicellular organism

Cells in Multicellular Organisms

  • Described as: Social entities that communicate with each other to achieve common goals

Signalling in Biology

  • Compared to: A wireless communication network, where cells are the devices and signals are the transmitted information

Lecture 2: Signalling Series

  • Topic: Intercellular signalling mechanisms and their role in development and homeostasis
