Biology II - Genetics (9 ECTS)

This course offers an introduction to studying the cellular and molecular basis of inheritance by covering such topics as: genome structure, regulation of gene expression and patterns of inheritance pertinent to the monogenic and polygenic nature of human pathologies. A component on population and developmental genetics is also included in the course. Cutting-edge applications of genetics in modern medical practice are discussed, including pharmacogenetics, nutrigenetics, gene and stem cell therapies.

Learning outcomes

Medical students who complete Biology 2 course gain a solid understanding of molecular biology and medical genetics as well as practical DNA technology abilities.
