SHUA11001U  Course in Molecular Biology and Genetics

Volume 2013/2014
Education
MSc in Human Biology - compulsory
Content
To give students a thorough understanding of gene structure, gene expression and regulation, and mechanisms fundamental to cell differentiation
Learning Outcome

At the end of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Present the theoretical molecular biological knowledge needed to understand the structure and regulation of genes, particularly in relation to the human organism
  • Present theoretical human genetic knowledge to an extent enabling him or her to understand the association between the gene at the molecular level and pathologies caused by gene mutations, their diagnosis and treatment (gene therapy)
  • Present the molecular biology knowledge needed to understand molecular biology issues and basic gene technology procedures and the fundamental principles of biotechnological production methods
  • Master the practical skills needed to plan and execute fundamental gene technology procedures.
  • Critically interpret molecular biological results
