Course objectives
Students will acquire a working knowledge of genomic databases and their applications in experimental analysis of biological functions of genes and genomes. Biological function of a concrete member of a complex gene family will be analysed by identification of an insertion mutation in the gene and analysis of phenotype alterations in the mutant.
  • Introduction to genomics. Methods of functional genomics. Genome databases. Insertion mutant collections - a powerful tool for plant functional genomics. DNA fragment analysis - automated genetic analyzer ABI PRISM 310. Oligonucleotide design, synthesis and purification - EXPEDITE 8909 Nucleic Acid Synthesizer. Genomic DNA isolation from Arabidopsis thaliana. PCR, DNA electrophoresis in agarose gels. Southern blot and DNA molecular hybridization. Identification and characterization of an insertion mutation in a selected member of a complex gene family in Arabidopsis thaliana via a PCR based screen.
