Knowledge of high school biology
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- Biomedicínská technika a bioinformatika (programme LF, C-CV)
- Course objectives
- After completion of the course student: operates light microscope; understands the basics of in vitro cell culture, genetic engineering or the methods of karyotyping; tries the methods of elementary molecular screening for some of the hereditary 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 subjects and in practice.

- Assessment methods
- Practical classes are mandatory.
Bring printed protocol for each practice, 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; activity in the practical classes.
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 within 5 days from the absence beginning 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). 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 4 or more unexcused absences, credit is not awarded.
Substitution of practical classes: in case of illness, or appointment at the doctor’s, 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.
