Molecular Genetics:

Fundamentals of molecular genetics, mechanisms of DNA replication and recombination, regulation of gene expression at the level of transcription and translation, mutations and DNA repair, genetic engineering.

Molecular Genetics:

Exercise hour to deepen the material covered in the VL Molecular Genetics.

Molecular genetics course:

Independent performance of experiments on the topics: Occurrence of spontaneous mutations and Ames test; UV mutagenesis and isolation of auxotrophic bacterial mutants; bacterial conjugation; restriction mapping; regulation of lac operon; use of lacZ as a reporter gene in yeast; genetic linkage analysis.

Qualification Goals

Students learn the fundamentals of molecular genetics while gaining an understanding of key biological processes. The goal is knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of replication, transcription, translation and their respective regulation. The implementation of molecular genetic questions in experiments and their planning and preparation will be practiced, as well as mathematical and graphical methods for the evaluation, documentation, interpretation and discussion of molecular genetic experiments.
