- Course objectives
- The course provides an overview of the current knowledge of molecular biology and cell biology in the context of other theoretical branches of the Faculty of Medicine. Recent and modern concepts of molecular cell structures, functional organization of the cell and gene expression and regulation are presented to students. In addition, molecular mechanisms of cell division and cell cycle are discussed. The subject matter presented in this course will help to better understand other subjects including physiology, pathology and human and clinical genetics.

- Aktuální protokoly k praktickým cvičením jsou dostupné pouze v elektronické podobě na stránkách informačního systému MU (ISu): Studijní materiály předmětu ZLBI0121c
- Actual protocols for practicals are provided only in their electronic form in the Information System of Masaryk University (www.is.muni.cz): Study Materials for ZLBI0121c
- Teaching methods
- laboratory practise, class discussion
- Assessment methods
- Lessons are mandatory. Individual protocols have to be downloaded from IS and printed in advance. Credit is given under following circumstances: successfully passed 2 control tests during the semester, all protocols checked (also for missed lessons due to absence), 1 absence is allowed. For any additional absence(s) student is required to write an essay in the length of 2 pages on a given topic. In case of 3 absences, or more but excused absences (i.e. confirmed by the Office for Studies and included to the Information System) it is addressed individually and credit is given only after the proof of the student's knowledge of the whole term topics (Credit test). In case of 4 or more unexcused absences credit is not given.
