This course uses the primary literature to develop a systems-level understanding of the information flow through the various cell signaling pathways and networks. Current areas of research activities in the experimental and theoretical understanding of cell signaling research are highlighted. This Teaching Resource describes a sample syllabus and organization for this course. Each lecture is 2 hours. After each set of lectures, there is a 2-hour discussion period during which students present an in-depth analysis of a primary literature article, selected in consultation with the lecturer.
