Molecular Genetics and Straindevelopment VO

Lector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf, Ing. DI (FH) Dr. Harald Kühnel, MSc

2SWS
4ECTS

Lecture contents

Knowledge on basics of molecular genetics:

What are living organisms made of - in a biochemical sense - what molecules - which compartments and structures? How are these molecules, compartments and structures passed on to offspring?
How do living organisms function in a chemical and physical sense? How is this live "steered"?
How identical are offspring to their parents, or how different?
How is genetic and biological relationship explained on the molecular level?

Topics in the Basics part:
- Historical perspective - Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics
- Differences between Eukaryota, Porkaryota, Archaea, and Viruses
- Replication - Transcription - Translation
- Mutations and Recombination

Methods included in this part:
- Sequencing technologies

3ECTS

Lecture contents

In this lecture we talk about what Bioinformatics is and why we need it today. The studients will be introduced to basic programming and can play around with simple practical examples.
We will go through specific topics of Bioinformatics and discuss the available applications. The topics include:
- Why did Bioinformatics develop and what is it.
- Human Genome Project and its consequences
- Biological sequences, sequence comparison and database search.
- Pattern search
- Structure of biological sequences and structure prediction
- High throughput technologies and data analysis

Programming:
- practical examples in R and a short introduction in Python

Assessment methods

Exercises to be handed in using the Moodle Platform, and short mulitple choice tests also on the Moodle platform.

Teaching methods

lecture, powerpoint presentation, discussion and hands on exercises

Language
