Welcome to the Wikiversity Department of Cell Biology.
The Department of Cell Biology is where Wikiversity participants can organize efforts that attempt to facilitate explorations of cells as fundamental components of organisms. The Department needs to develop more Cell Biology-related activities that Wikiversity participants can use as learning resources. These activities can include efforts that aim to improve Wikipedia articles and contribute to Wikibooks modules. Since Wikiversity allows and encourages scholarly research, Wikiversity can function in some ways like a university that helps find educational content and sources for sister projects like Wikipedia. Wikiversity itself can host types of content that are not allowed at Wikipedia and Wikibooks.
Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
- Overview of Cell Biology
- Stem Cells - What are stem cells? Why is stem cell research regulated by some governments?
- Cell Biology - Exploring cell biology. Independent study with projects.
- Bacteria on your skin
- Molecular evolution/Intermediate filament proteins - exploring the origins of an important type of cytoskeletal protein
- Human skin pigmentation - explore melanin, melanosomes, melanocytes, MSH and the control of skin pigmentation.
Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!

Active participants[edit | edit source]
The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in this department, you can list your name here (this can help small departments grow and the participants communicate better; for large departments a list of active participants is not needed).
