Course objectives
The course provides an overview of the current knowledge of molecular biology, genetics and human genetics in the context of other theoretical branches of the Faculty of Medicine. Recent and modern concepts of developmental biology, cell signaling, structural and epigenetic changes in the DNA, gene therapy and bioinformatics are discussed. In addition, an introduction to tumor biology is included. The subject matter presented in this course will help to better understand other subjects including physiology, pathology and human and clinical genetics.
