Course objectives
At the end ofg the course, students will acquire practical experience with basic methods of functional genomics, i.e. particularly with the identification of sequence specific insertional mutants identification: From the primer design, (primers) DNA synthesis, PCR, PCR product identification on agarose gels and confirmation of the PCR specificity using Southern blot hybridization with labeled probe till the fragmentation analysis using automated sequencing machine. The work is organized in groups of two students each, allowing thus self-dependent experiment planning and accomplishment. At the end of the course, the students will get the overview of basic approaches of the functional genomics. Students will be able to aply them for solution of problems during their own scientific praxis.
  • Design of oligonucleotides sequence
  • Oligonucleotides synthesis
