Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student will understand the general principles of molecular biology, cellular processes of replication, transcription, translation at the molecular level, and understand the basic principles of preparing recombinant DNA. After completion of the subject the student controls the basic molecular biology methods, which is able to apply in laboratory practice and in research.
The molecular structure of chromosomes. Chemical composition and biological role of nucleic acids. Chloroplast, mitochondrial and plasmid inheritance. Molecular mechanisms and enzymology of DNA replication. The mechanism and enzymes of transcription. Decoding the genetic code, protein synthesis, regulation of gene expression in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Molecular mechanism of mutation and DNA repair. Basic principles of gene cloning.
