Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim of the subject - is to provide knowledge about animal cell culture which has become an essential laboratory technique for the study of biochemical and physiological processes. Homogeneous cell populations can be produced by controlled growth of several cell generations and this offers an important alternative for such studies to the use of homogenized animal tissue.
The subject provides the necessary basic information about the conditions of cell culture manipulation, keeping cells in culture, passage and using of cell culture and tissues.

Learning outcomes - graduate of the study gets practical skills in the field of manipulation of animal cell and tisue cultures.
Course contents:
The use of animal cell culture. Characteristics of cells in culture. Basic equipment and laboratory design: what is necessary to know for work with cell culture. Growth and maintenance of cells in culture. Cell line and culture monitoring. Safety of the cell line. Tissue engineering.
