- Course objectives
- At the end of this course the student will be able to: understand and explain the mechanisms of embryonal development; identify structures that develop during embryogenesis and organogenesis; interpret and explain current knowledge and problems of regenerative and reproductive medicine; formulate and discuss hypotheses on the topic of ontogenesis and evolution.
- Learning outcomes
- Students should be able:
- understand and explain the mechanisms of embryonal development
- identify structures that develop during embryogenesis and organogenesis
- interpret and explain current knowledge and problems of regenerative and reproductive medicine
- formulate and discuss hypotheses on the topic of ontogenesis and evolution
- 1. Introduction, general terms, basic molecular pathways; 2. Reproduction, gametogenesis, fertilization; 3. Blastogenesis; 4. Sub/in/fertility, reproductive medicine; 5. Gastrulation and tissue development; 6. Somites, neurogenesis 7; Body cavities development; 8. Development of pulmonary and cardiovascular systems; 9. Development of gastrointestinal system; 10.

- Teaching methods
- lectures and homework
- Assessment methods
- Attendance is not obligatory, but recommended for a good understanding of the topics discussed. A final exam (at the end of the semester) will consist of a test containing 20 multiple-choice questions (one answer is always correct). The test is successfully completed if more than 60 % of answers are correct.
- Language of instruction
- Further comments (probably available only in Czech)
- The course is taught annually.
The course is taught: in blocks.
Information on course enrolment limitations: The course is offered to incoming Erasmus students. The students even of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with can be enrolled in this course.
