Course objectives
The aim of the DNA diagnostics course is to familiarize students with the practical aspects of performing DNA analyzes.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to perform the practical DNA analysis - isolate DNA by different methods from different materials, use different PCR methods, restriction analysis, electrophoresis on agarose gel, DNA sequencing, and use immunochromatographic tests.
