Course objectives
After completion of the course student: operates light microscope; understands the basics of electron microscopy, genetic toxicology, gene engineering or the methods of karyotyping; is able to evaluate the risk of hereditary diseases in a patient on the basis of assigned family anamnesis of this disease; is able to propose and interpret elementary molecular screening methods for some hereditary, neoplastic or microbial diseases. Student is also able to apply this knowledge and skills in other subject, especially histology, pathology and human genetics.

Assessment methods
Practical classes are mandatory.
Bring printed protocol for each practicer, and your own writing materials. Download protocol for each practical class from the Study materials in the IS, and study it in advance. Lab shoes, lab coats and disposable gloves are not required.
Requirements for course completion: full attendance in the practical classes (1 absence, excused or unexcused, is allowed); all protocols completed (also for missed lessons) and checked and signed by appropriate teachers; successfully passed 2 written control tests during the semester (20 questions each, 4 possibilities, 1 answer correct, student need to reach at least 14 points out of 20 in each test). In case you do not pass one of the control tests and its re-sit, you have to pass the final test (so-called Credit test) based on knowledge of the whole semester. The test comprises of 20 questions: 10 test questions (multiple answers can be correct, negative marking is obtained for incorrect answers) + 10 given terms for written explanation. At least 14 points out of 20 are needed to pass.
In case of student’s late arrival to the practice, poor activity at the practice student is required to write an essay in the length of 2 pages on a given topic. Same for the case of 2nd and any additional absence in practices, excused or unexcused. Find the instructions for essay writing in the Course-related instructions in the IS, bring the essay printed to the teacher who specified the topic and be ready to answer the teacher's questions regarding the topic.
In case of 3 absences, (or more than 3 absences all excused 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 semester topics (so-called Credit test, see above).
In case of 4 or more unexcused absences, credit is not awarded.
Substitution of practical classes: in case of illness, appointment at the doctor’s or foreign policy, student can exceptionally 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 at least 24 hours in advance. Repeated substitution with other groups is not allowed.
