Learning outcome

Knowledge:
The student will obtain detailed knowledge on

  • gene technology methods
  • cellular control of macromolecular biosynthesis with emphasis on the experimental basis
  • generation of genome- and cDNA libraries
  • screening of libraries including expression cloning in Xenopus oocytes and Saccharomyces cerevisiae
  • genome-, trancriptome- and proteome analysis
  • production of transgenic animals
  • heterologous expression in bacteria, yeast/fungi, insect cells, mammalian cells and whole animals


Skills:
The student gains core competences within modern gene technology. The degree of confidence with modern gene technology/molecular biology obtained during the course allows him/her to design gene technology/molecular biology experiments based upon known gene technological methods. The student obtains experience with critical interpretation and treatment of original molecular biology data.

Competences:
The two most important competences obtained by the student are to comprehend scientific data and put them in a genetechnology/molecular biology context and to use the genetechnology toolbox to solve real genetechnological/molecular biology problems.

Lectures, problem solving.
