The course deals with various technologies for analysis of human biological material at the molecular level (such as high-capacity analyses of DNA / RNA, proteins and metabolites). In addition, various (simple) bioinformatics tools, including databases, are introduced for the analysis of nucleic acid and protein sequences. Various forms of biobanks and the handling and storage of human biological material (to preserve its integrity) will also be presented. Topics will be taken from medical genetics, oncology and microbiology, in both diagnostics and research. In addition, ethical and legal issues related to the production, analysis and use of large amounts of data from a single patient as well as biobanks will be elucidated.
- Has knowledge about molecular biology and molecular biology techniques as a foundation for specific topics in laboratory sciences and further studies.
- Has basic knowledge of high-capacity technology used in diagnostics and research.
- Has knowledge of bioinformatics and the use of bioinformatic tools in personalized medicine and other areas of laboratory medicine.
- Has knowledge about how changes in genes and/or gene expression may lead to disease.
- Can search and find information in relevant databases.
- Can perform simple analyses of biological data using bioinformatic tools.
- Has knowledge about and can relate to medical use of biotechnology, research in medical and health sciences and various biobanks, including acts and regulations that control this in Norway (the Biotechnology Act, the Biobank Act, and the Health Research Act).
- Is aware of relevant ethical issues that new technologies in medicine and health sciences bring, and can identify, reflect, and handle these in relation to work as biomedical laboratory scientists (professional ethics).
- Can exchange views and experiences and can update their knowledge through collecting information and having contact with the professional environment and field.
- Can document their professional knowledge.
Learning methods and activities
Lectures, student-driven activities such as group work, presentations and more.
Further on evaluation
The teaching will be based on various student-driven activities that will be compulsory and must be approved before the exam. The type and scope will be stated at the start of the study.
New/postponed exam: August. New/postponed exam can be changed to oral exam. Assessment report requires approved teaching report the same semester. Compulsory activity from previous semesters can be approved by the department.
For applications for credits, approval and integration of courses from previous years or other institutions' equivalent education, each application will be evaluated individually. A reduction of credits (studiepoengsreduksjon) might apply if the candidate has passed exams in overlapping courses.
