The course provides training in the techniques used in routine molecular biology methods producing data, which are often subject to bioinformatics analysis. It aims at methods of isolation and analysis of DNA sequences and electrophoretic separation of target proteins. The course objectives further include: good laboratory practice, the rules of organization of an experiment and appropriate interpretation of data.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ320 (11.12.2013)

Students will be able to:

Independently conduct and properly record particular experiment. Isolate specific DNA molecules from cells and conduct their analysis through restriction digestion and nucleotide sequencing.

Conduct and interpret basic of electrophoretic DNA and protein analyses.

Understand the importance specific working procedures in molecular biology laboratory and will be knowledgeable in options allowing optimizing selected parameters of the experiments introduced during the course.
