3. Course contents *

The theorethical course covers basic concepts of molecular biology, (i.e. DNA replication, transcription, translation, mutation and recombination), and cases of basic and advanced state-of-the-art applications in gene technology, such as PCR, cloning, -omics, microarrays, transgenetics,  et cetera.

During laboratory sessions, the most important molecular techniques (PCR, cloning, gel electrophoresis,...) will be brought into practice. One session will be devoted to hands-on introduction to bioinformatics analysis.
