|6 credits||7P||M. Jagannathan, Y. Barral, C. Beyer, K. Bomblies, R. Kroschewski, G. Neurohr|
|Abstract||The course will introduce students to key concepts and laboratory research within the broad field of "Genome stability".|
|Objective||Students 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".|
|Content||The 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.|
|Literature||Documentation and recommended literature in the form of review articles and selected primary literature will be provided during the course.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||This course will be taught in English.|
|551-1310-00L||A Problem-Based Approach to Cellular Biochemistry |
Number of participants limited to 12.
|6 credits||2G||M. Peter, V. Korkhov, G. Neurohr, V. Panse, A. E. Smith, F. van Drogen|
|Abstract||Independent, guided acquisition of a defined area of research, identification of key open questions, development of an experimental strategy to address a defined question, and formulation of this strategy within the framework of a research grant.|
|Objective||Working independently, students will acquire an overview of a defined research area, and identify important open questions. In addition, they will develop an experimental strategy to address a defined question, and to formulate this strategy within the framework of a research grant.|
|Content||The students will work in groups of two to three, in close contact with a tutor (ETH Prof or senior scientist). A research overview with open questions and a research grant will be developed independently by the students, with guidance from the tutor through regular mandatory meetings. The students will write both the research overview with open questions and the grant in short reports, and present them to their colleagues.|
|Literature||The identification of appropriate literature is a component of the course.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||This course will be taught in English, and requires extensive independent work.|
