Course Description


  • Experimental organisms in research of genetics of eukaryota
  • Characteristics, structure, function and maintenance of the eukaryotic genome
  • Cell cycle regulation and tumorigeneses
  • The genome and fundamentals of human genetics
  • Fundamentals of population genetics


  • Propose a model organism for the implementation in a specific research and to state the characteristics of the organism that makes it suitable for carrying out that research
  • Categorize individual genes based on their name and / or characteristics and predict the effects of mutation / inactivation of these genes as well asassociate the given phenotype with appropriate mutation
  • Illustrate and explain different homologous recombination models
  • Conclude and illustrate the result of homologous recombination between transforming DNA and yeast genome as well as intrachromosomal and interchromosomal homologous recombination
  • Identify, categorize and compare similarities, differences and specifics in the structure, organization and expression of eukaryotic and prokaryotic genes and genomes
  • Propose solutions on a problem questions based on the understanding of eukaryotic and population genetics
  • Independently review and orally present the original scientific paper (written in English) from the field of genetics of eukaryota
  • Perform simple genetic research on S.cerevisiae yeast, such as determining the frequency of "pop-out" recombination
