Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
At the end of this course the student will understand the molecular nature of modern biotechnology and the use of recombinant DNA technology in industrial, agricultural, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. Students will have the theoretical foundation and a comprehensive overview of the field important for their future career in research laboratories, biomedical research and development or biotechnology industry.
Learning outcomes
Student will have an up-to-date overview of the advanced methods used in the field of molecular biotechnology, particularly:
- molecular biology and modification of DNA;
- basic methods in synthetic biology;
- protein engineering;
- microfluidics and "lab on chip" technologies;

During the course the student will also get an up-to-date overview of modern molecular biotechnology applications in the following areas:
- medicine and advanced diagnostics;
- long-term sustainable industries;
- modern agriculture and biofuels;
- environmental protection;

Teaching methods
During lecturing, the PowerPoint presentations are used, PDF materials for printing and notices are available before each course, short written tests at the beginning of selected lectures and short exercises and discussions during lectures are prepared.
Assessment methods
Short written tests will be prepared at the beginning of selected lectures. Each short written test will contain ten questions on the previous curriculum. Final evaluation of the course will be based on the cumulative results of these short written tests.

In the case that (i) the student will not fulfill all short tests, (ii) will not be successful in the short tests, or (iii) is not satisfied with the result of the short testing, he or she will be evaluated by the general written test. Terms for the general written test will be listed in the current examination period, the test will contain 50 questions from overall course content, the time to complete the test will be 1 hour.

The student receives a score according to the following criteria (success in test questions / evaluation:% 100-91 / A; 90-76% / B, 75-61% / C, 60-46% / D, 45-31% / E; 30 -0% / F).
