These PowerPoint slides provide an overview to the course �Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students� and lay out the general principles that can be deduced from the current understanding of the organization of cell signaling pathways and networks and how information flows through these pathways and networks. The second portion of the slides provides an overview of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling.
