At the end of the course students should be able to understand principals of work with bacterial cells and bacteriophages and to understand chosen tasks, to solve various problems they can face in bacterial physiology; to use set of chosen techniques used in physiological laboratories; to work with growth characteristics of bacterial cells and phages, influence of temperature and UV on lysogenic cells and phages; to prepare crude enzymatic preparation and to test its enzymatic activity.
Determination of the bacterial proteins and dry-weight. Bacterial growth curve in static culture (using plate counts). One-step growth curve of the polyvalent and virulent staphylopage. Determination of dehydrogenase activity. Preparation of the crude enzymatic preparation (HEP) with phosphatase activity. Determination of phosphatase activity of native cells and HEP. Oxygen consumption (Oxi-Top). Biodegradation. Influence of heavy metals on bacterial growth (Bioscreen).
Schemata pro jednotlivé úlohy poskytne vyučující
Horáková, D., Němec, M. (2003) : Laboratorní cvičení z fyziologie bakterií
Topic of each practical is at first explained and demonstrated to students. Then students are solving the practical task by themselves. The outcome of each practical is written report.
Active participation at practical course, reports, credit.
Further comments (probably available only in Czech)
The course can also be completed outside the examination period.
The course is taught annually.
Cvičení nelze individuálně nahrazovat během semestru vzhledem k náročné přípravě materiálu.
