KurzbeschreibungThe course will introduce students to key concepts and laboratory research within the broad field of "Genome stability".
LernzielStudents will learn to design, apply and evaluate current research strategies in a wide range of modern research areas encompassing the broad field of "Genome stability".
InhaltThe course will consist of lectures, practical laboratory work in small groups, informal progress report sessions, and the presentation of laboratory work. Lectures will expose students to key concepts and techniques in the field. Students will team into small groups and work in one laboratory for the duration of the course. Students will meet regularly for informal "progress report" discussions of their projects. Student performance will be assessed based on the quality of their practical work, a written exam on frontal lecture material, and a presentation of their practical work.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature in the form of review articles and selected primary literature will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be taught in English.
