Course objectives
The subject will provide a thorough overview of current knowledge in molecular and cell biology: cell structure and function, storage and expression of genetic information, cell division and differentiation, cellular interactions and malignant transformation. Students will gain practical skills in microscopy, in performing biological experiments and their evaluation. The acquired knowledge will help students to understand better other subjects – techniques of molecular genetics, histology, biochemistry, physiology, pathology and human and clinical genetics.
  • Introduction. Viruses.
  • Microscopic and submicroscopic structure of prokaryotic cells.
  • Microscopic structure of eukaryotic cells.
  • Tissue and cell cultures.
  • Biomemranes.
  • Electron microscopy.
  • DNA structure and replication.
  • Expression of genetic information.
  • Cell cycle.
  • Mitosis.
  • Meiosis.
  • Human karyotype. Chromosomal aberrations.
  • Autosomal and gonosomal inheritance.
