Course objectives
After completion of the course student: operates light microscope; understands the basics of genetic toxicology, genetic engineering or the methods of karyotyping; tries the methods of elementary molecular screening for some of the hereditary, neoplastic or microbial diseases in practice and is able to interpret their results; understands the cell structure and function and the processes of preservation and expression of genetic information; knows the basics of genetics and is able to evaluate the risk of hereditary diseases in a patient on the basis of given information. Student is also able to apply this knowledge and skills in other subject and in practice.
  • Methods of molecular biology and genetics. Principles of genetic engineering – DNA cloning. Diagnostics of pathogenic bakteria. Molecular analysis of human genotype. Prokaryotic cell. Eukaryotic cell. DNA structure and replication. Expression of genetic information. Cell cycle. Biological significance of meiosis – gametogenesis. Human karyotype and chromosomal aberations. Autosomal inheritance. Gonosomal inheritance. Genetic toxicology.

Teaching methods
laboratory practice, class discussion
Assessment methods
Lessons are mandatory.
Students will bring their own writing implements, scissors and protocol. Download protocol for each practical class from the Study materials, print it and study it in advance. Lab shoes, lab coats and disposable gloves are not required.
Requirements for course completion: attendance in the practical classes (1 absence, excused or unexcused, is allowed), all protocols worked out (also for missed lessons) ad checked and signed by appropriate teachers, activity in the practical classes.
Substitution of practical classes: in case of illness, appointment at the doctor’s or foreign policy, student will arrange a substitution with another group on the same teaching week. To arrange a substitution, write an e-mail to the contact person of the subject in advance.
Essay: In case of student’s late arrival to the practice, poor activity at the practice or for second or 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 than 3 excused absences (i.e. confirmed by the Office for Studies and introduced into 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 (so-called Credit test based on knowledge of the whole semester (20 questions - 10 test questions, more answers can be correct, and 10 terms for written explanation), student need to reach at least 14 points out of 20). In case of 4 or more unexcused absences, credit is not awarded.
