Course content

The course aims at providing an introduction to the basic principles of the molecular genetics of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. The main areas of recombinant DNA technology applications will also be covered. Examples of important topics that will be discussed are: gene organization in pro- and eukaryotes, regulation of transcription and translation, techniques in recombinant DNA technology, bioinformatics in gene and genome analyses, biotechnolgical applications of molecular genetics.

Learning outcome

To understand how the genetic information in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms is organized and realized, and to acquire basic knowledge about the methods used to study these topics. It will be important to understand a link between bioinformatics and laboratory-based experiments. The students should also obtain a basic understanding of how this knowledge can be used in applied biotechnology, and be able to suggest experimental solutions to common problems occurring in basic and applied molecular genetic research.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, laboratory work (intensive lab course). The course will be given in English.
