Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods :
During the semester there will be 2 written tests with 20 points, written final exam for 60 points. To obtain A evaluation must be obtained at least 93 points for the evaluation of B at least 86 points, C rating on at least 79 points for the evaluation of at least 72 points D and E on the evaluation of at least 64 points
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim of subject is characteristic of living matter and forms (subvirus pathogens, viruses, prokaryotes, eukaryotes), the cell as the basic structural unit of living matter. Morphological part of the course deals with the study of the shape and structure of cells and cell organelles in normal or experimentally modified conditions. Functional cytology section describes various physiological, biochemical and biophysical methods to investigate the functional manifestations of living cells under normal and pathological conditions.
After completion of the subject the student understands of biology and functional proceses in anaimal cells, is able to apply knowledge in the area of biological science, is able to identify of structure and function of live and daeath cells.
Course contents:
The subject is studied structural and functional realities of animal cells. Describes the living matter, a form of living matter, followed by structure, structure and diseases caused by non-cellular forms (viruses, prokaryotes). Characterized differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The actual chapter discusses prions and prionoses. To characterize cell research methods, evaluation of structural and functional changes. Individual cell organelles are described in terms of structural and functional. The next section describes the handling of animal cells. Describe the changes in cell differentiation and ontogenetic development. In conclusion, the subject discusses about cytopathology and then characterize cancer cells.
