Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Evaluation will have three parts: 1) practical work in the lab, 2) seminars, and 3) written report. Participants will need to pass all three evaluations to pass the course.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Active participation in lab experiments and seminar (incl. presentation), as well as written protocol.
Methods: Theoretical knowledge will be disseminated through lectures (PowerPoint Presentations), the course handout and original literature. Supervised hands-on training in independent experiments will teach you how to identify microorganisms through 16S rRNA gene/transcript analysis and fluorescence in situ hybridization techniques (FISH/ CARD-FISH). You will further learn about the use of functional genes/transcripts to identify microorganisms involved in a certain function, and how to investigate their activity with stable isotope probing incubations. The theoretical principles of high-resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS) and Raman microspectroscopy coupled to stable isotope incubations will also be discussed.The course includes computer-based sequence analysis as well as presentations and discussion of the results in student seminars.
