Synopsis:
Requirements:

Lectures are not obligatory, but their attendance is recommended.

The final exams will take place during the winter semester exam period. A maximum of two dates will be announced during the summer semester. This means that a student who decides not to sit the exam by the end of the winter semester automatically loses 1-2 exam dates.

During the exam the student must not use any information sources or electronic aids (cell phones, tablets, smart watch, calculators etc.).

Consultation hours are possible after negotiation with the teacher - e-mail: eduard.kocarek@lfmotol.cuni.cz

The materials listed below are recommended for self-study.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction to genetics, structure, function and properties of information biomacromolecules, central dogma of molecular biology, DNA replication, transcription, and translation, genetic code, genome, transcriptome, exome, proteome.

2. Genomics; human genome, types of sequences present in it, human genome project, human gene and its structure, regulation of gene expression in human cell, epigenetics

3. Types of mutations and their origin, DNA polymorphisms; the molecular basis of genetically conditioned diseases.

4. Basic tools and techniques of molecular genetics, genetic laboratory and its equipment

5. Genetic testing, its ethical and legal issues; bioinformatics and its importance in genetics

6. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell and their genome. Non-cellular organisms: viruses, virusoids, viroids and prions, their significance

7. Principles of cytogenetics; structure and types of chromosomes, human karyotype, numerical and structural aberrations of chromosomes. Cytogenetic examinations and their importance, application of image analysis in cytogenetics

8. Cell cycle, its regulation and possible errors.
