Course objectives
The aim is to educate the students in basic principles of molecular biology and molecular genetics analytical techniques.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course, students should be able to understand principles of basic techniques of molecular biology and human genetics. They should understand stucture of human genome, principles of genome analyses and principles of heritability. They should be able to employ basic mathods of molecular biology and genetics.
