Course objectives
The student gains practical experience with sterile sampling of DNA from historical skeletal material. He will be trained in the work of a DNA sample in a laboratory. This exercise is necessary for students of anthropobiology and anthropogenetics to develop their diploma theses.
Learning outcomes
Students completing the course will be able to: - separate tissue sampling for DNA analysis - lysing bone tissue, purifying and DNA - choose the most suitable method for the given topic of the diploma thesis - design a protocol for genetic analysis - optimize a protocol for genetic analysis - bioinformatically and statistically evaluate the results
  • 1. Selection of sample for analysis of DNA, anti-contaminating measures 2. Lysis, purification of a DNA 3. Quantification and determination of aDNA quality 4. PCR and its optimization 5. Sequencing 6. Bioinformatics and statistical tools for evaluation of genetic analysis results
