Molecular Biology for Non-life Scientists
The course will give a brief introduction to very fundamental
molecular and cellular biology, and is targeting students with no
life science background (e.g. students with a finished BSc
programme in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, etc.)
DNA repair, replication, transcription and translation. Regulation of gene expression, cell cycle and cell communication. Proteins, intracellular transport, membrane transport and membrane structures.
MSc Programme in Bioinformatics
The student will know the basics of molecular biology and
genetics, including DNA repair, replication, transcription and
translation; regulation of gene expression, cell cycle and cell
communication; proteins, intracellular transport, membrane
transport and membrane structures.
The student will be able to understand and use basic concepts in molecular biology and genetics, including DNA repair, replication, transcription and translation; regulation of gene expression, cell cycle and cell communication; proteins, intracellular transport, membrane transport and membrane structures.
The student will be able to communicate the basics of molecular biology and genetics and relate this to other subjects.
Lectures, study groups and exercises mixed (6 hours per week). 4 written assignments with running evaluation. All assignments must be passed to succesfully complete the course.
This course is aimed at students with no prior knowledge of
molecular biology and genetics, such as mathematicians and computer
scientists starting in the bioinformatics programme. Students
having finished a life science BSc programme such as biology or
biomedicine are strongly recommended to choose other courses.
Academic qualifications equivalent to a BSc degree is recommended.
