Course contents:

The course content is the construction and regulation of complex genomes including techniques used to study these. More specifically, this includes central methodology on functional genome research, comparative genome analysis, genetic and physical mapping of genomes, genome sequencing, gene expression and methods for proteome analysis. Lectures related to the learning goals are held during the whole semester.

Learning outcome:

After completing the course, students are to have established a good understanding of how higher-level eucaryote genomes are built up and regulated. The students are to be able to describe and explain the most important methods used to study genomes, transcriptomes and proteomes, including the evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the methods.The students will learn and obtain experience with how to prepare and deliver effective oral and written presentations of technical information and scientific results. They will learn to think critically and solve complex and multidisciplinary problems, as well as learn to accurately interpret current research literature.

Learning activities:

Lectures are given on central topics in the course. In addition there will be semester assignments, and each group has to present a review paper related to the topic of their semester assignment.
