Synopsis:

General genetics: basic genetic expressions. Genotypes and Phenotypes. Mendel´s theory of inheritance. Basis of clinical genetics: heredity of genetic diseases, monogenic autosomal and gonosomal heredity and monogenic autosomal and gonosomal hereditary dominant and recessive disorders, polygenic heredity, examples of hereditary diseases. Mutagenesis: types of mutations and mutations consequences, physical, chemical and biological mutagens. Carcinogenesis, cell cycle regulation, protooncogens, tumor suppressor genes, chromosomal changes in tumors. Clinical cytogenetics. Inborn chromosomal abnormalities numerical and structural, causes of chromosomal abnormalities origin, examples of the most frequent chromosomal abnormalities. Immunogenetics, heredity of blood groups. Prenatal cytogenetic diagnosis - methods, indications, ethic problems in genetics. Molecular cytogenetics, hybridization in situ. Methods in Assisted Reproduction Technology. Molecular biology. Genetic Engineering. DNA cloning. Gene therapy.
