The course deals with the structure and function of the genetic material in eukaryotic organisms. Genome organization and mechanisms for gene expression are studied on an advanced level, with a strong connection to the most recent research in molecular genetics. A big attention is put on the methodology and techniques of molecular genetics, which serves as a preparation for postgraduate education and professional work. It involves organization and evolution of eukaryotic genomes, Principles of gene expression, Functional chromosomal elements and chromatin structure, Developmental genetics and tumour genetics, Gene technology: basic and applied molecular genetic methods.
