This subject requires experimental work in a laboratory. First of all, students will prepare a short literature review on a given biotechnological topic. Further, they will learn experimental and/or computational methodology associated with the specified topic and prepare a systematic plan, which will serve as a template for the experimental work. During the work, students will learn basic methodology of collection and processing of experimental data as well as to evaluate and compare the information obtained from the literature.
Aim of the course -

The object of Laboratory Project I is individual work on topics announced by relevant supervisors. Students will learn modern laboratory techniques, particularly in the following fields: biotechnology, microbiology, cell physiology, bioengineering, and others.

The work on the topic will start by searching for relevant literature. Then the student together with his/her supervisor will prepare a work plan as a guideline for the following laboratory experiments. The experimental results will be processed, evaluated and compared with the data available in the literature. The output of experimental work will be a report written in the form of a scientific publication with the usual structure. It is necessary to comply with all the formal requirements for the scope of work, the structure of the text, tables, and images as well as the literature citation. Students will also prepare an electronic presentation as a basis for the scientific defense in front of a committee composed of pedagogues.
