- Course objectives
- Main objectives of the course are to provide students with an overview of basic methods for analysis of macromolecules (DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids); with laboratory techniques for work with low molecular weight compounds; analyses of cell populations and subcellular structures; basic principles of in vivo experiments employing genetically modified mammals. The course is taught as lecture and seminar aimed at work with primary literature, in order to understand the importance of individual techniques and to interpret both literary and experimental data. Students should actively participate in seminars.
- 1)Protein analysis; separation techniques; Western blotting, protein-protein interactions; protein localization; protein post-translational modifications; proteomics; manipulations of protein expression.
- 2)Basic immunochemistry techniques.
- 3)DNA isolation, separation; PCR techniques, plasmid work, transfection of eukaryotic cells.
- 4)RNA isolation, detection (Northern blotting, RT-PCR), microarrays, siRNA.
- 5)Lipids and polysacharidy; isolation, separation and identification.
- 6)Low-molecular-weight compounds - separation and analytical techniques; HPLC techniques and their modifications.
- 7)Specific cellular assays.
- 8)Fluorescennce techniques.
- 9)Aplication of in vivo mammalian models in physiology.
