- Seminars revise the knowledge discussed at the Biology lectures - knowledge from the lectures is required.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- Course objectives
- The main objectives of the course are:
- to revise and deepen the knowledge discussed at the respective Biology lecture
- to set this knowledge into a broader medical context
- Learning outcomes
- After completing the course, the student will be able to:
- explain elementary processes taking place in cells and the human body (gene expression, intercellular communication, cell differentiation, cell division, cell death) and their purposes
- express the basic coherence between malfunctioning cellular processes and development of diseases
- explain the general mechanism of pathogenesis in bacterial and viral diseases
- explain the general mechanism of pathogenesis of gene mutations and chromosome aberrations in humans, and illustrate it with examples
- explain the effects of therapies interacting with cellular processes; explain the principles of anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-mitotic treatment
- Introduction to medical biology
- Bacteria and viruses
- Structure, functions and function anomalies of eukaryotic cells
- Gene expression; DNA replication
- Cell signalling and the principle of cell differentiation
- Cells in their social context – principles of cell adhesion
- Cell cycle
- Basics of genetics, the nature of dominance and recessivity
- Molecular principles of genetically determined disorders
- Cell death
- Epigenetics – the link between genes and environment
