Course objectives
Genome structure and its reactions on environmental effects. Mutations in exons, intrones and promoters. Monogenic and multigenic diseases. Relations of multigenic diseases and environment. Molecular biology methods – PCR, RFLP, sequencing. Functional genomics, proteomics. Gene therapy and pharmacogenetics. Genetics of developmental defects of enamel and dentine. Genetics of craniofacial malformations. Genetic analysis of oral pathogens. Genetics of periodontal diseases and tooth caries. Genes involved in pathogenesis of diseases manifested in oral cavity.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to: - summarize the basic methods used in molecular biology and genetics - They will acquire the basics of work in the molecular-biological laboratory - to identify the monogenic and multigenic basis of defects from the point of view of the dentist - describe the influence of genetics on the development of oral cavity disease - evaluate the effect of epigenetic factors
