Aims, contents and method of the course

This course teaches the first steps in molecular biology research. Students learn to in vitro recombine DNA molecules (cloning), to isolate DNA from bacteria and yeast, to use PCR, and to perform bacterial transduction.

Assessment and permitted materials

Compulsory attendance; the evaluation consists of different performances: active participation and results obtained, written report, theoretical knowledge including final exam (the percentage of the subgrades will be announced by the course leader); each of the subgrades must have a positive evaluation.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

87-100%: sehr gut
75-86.99%: 2
63-74.99%: 3
50-62.99% 4
0-49.99%: 5

Examination topics

Concentrations and dilutions, buffers, plasmids and their functional elements, plasmid extraction, PCR, restriction cloning, protein expression, SDS-PAGE, DNA (Sanger) sequencing. For methods used in the practical, it is essential to remember and understand the steps and their significance (what happens at each step). For buffers used during the practical, it is essential to understand the function of each component (remembering the exact concentration of each component is a plus, but not required).
