TOP REVIEWS FROM BASICS OF EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES
A lot of information broken down in logical and short segments (30 minutes) with great overviews of what each module will cover.
Awosome course. Lot of information given with paper based data and suggestion. I really love it. I am also working with Exosome. I use cell culture media from PC12 and fibroblast cell line.
The last two modules were extremely helpful and a very good opener to this topic.
This course provides enough essential information for study of extracellular vesicles.
