- Teaching methods
- Assessment methods
- Seminar attendance is mandatory. Students continue with following subjects without proof of this semester's knowledge. The subject is followed by Biology II-lecture (aVLBI0222p) that ends up with a written examination test covering the knowledge of all Biology topics from both semesters (lectures, seminars, practices).
