Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The subject is directly connected to subject Mendel genetic in exercises. The aim of the subject is to introduce possibilities of applied molecular genetics in forestry, and basics of molecular biology. We want to also discuss about popular topics like GMO (Genetically modified organism). During exercises we will also perform basic molecular-genetic approaches.
Course content:
1.Applied genetics around us (allowance 2/0)
a.Applications in medicine, breeding, criminalistics, and in phytopathology.

2.Introduction to laboratory work (allowance 0/2)
Preparing of solutions and buffers for molecular experiments (allowance 1/1)
