Prerequisites
VLBI0121c Biology I -pract. && VLBI0121s Biology I - seminar
Knowledge of high-school biology and all previous lectures and practical classes of the subject are prerequisities for studying the course. Expected knowledge for each lecture is specified in the course syllabus. Literature recomended to study before each lecture is detailed in the interactive syllabus of the course.

Course objectives
After completion of the course student: understands elementary cellular processes and processes taking place during development of a human body; comprehends the complexity of intercellular communication and mutual regulation of individual cells in a multicellular organism; knows basic principles of bacterial and viral diseases; is able to express basic coherence between malfunction in cellular processes and development of diseases, especially hereditary diseases, cancers or developmental defects, and understands the principle of genetic determination of hereditary diseases; can explain and justify action of some therapeutics with emphasis on modern medicine. Student is also able to apply this knowledge and skills in other subject, especially physiology, pathophysiology and human genetics.

Assessment methods
The course Biology II builds on knowledge gained from subjects Biology I - lecture (aVLBI0121p) and Biology - seminar (aVLBI0121s). The course is completed with a written examination test taken on computers. It contains questions based on the topics discussed in the lectures, seminars and practices. The students are expected to be able to solve given problems on their own, and to derive the solutions by their own consideration based on the theory discussed in the course of both semesters and supplemented by the recommended reading.
