Course objectives
The subject should provide a survey of basic knowledge from molecular and cell biology as well as from human genetics. Selected topics in molecular and cell biology include storage and expression of genetic information, cell structure and function including cellular interactions, development, basic genetics. The above mentioned knowledge is a prerequisite of further theoretic and preclinical studies.
  • Methods of molecular biology and genetics. Restriction mapping. Principles of genetic engineering – DNA cloning. Diagnostics of pathogenic bakteria. Prokaryotic cell. Eukaryotic cell. DNA structure and replication. Expression of genetic information: transcription, translation, editing. Cell cycle. Biological significance of meiosis – gametogenesis. Human karyotype and chromosomal aberations. Autosomal heredity. Gonosomal heredity. Genetic toxicology.
