Catalogue data

AbstractThis introductory Laboratory course introduces the student to the entire range of classical and modern molecular biosciences. In the second year (Praktikum GL Bio II) the students will perform three praktikum days in:
- Molecular Biology
- Plant Physiology
- Genetics and
- Cell Biology II.

(total of 12 experiments)

Each experiment takes one full day.
ObjectiveIntroduction to theoretical and experimental biology
Moodle www-link for general Praktikum-information and course material: Moodle

The general Praktikum information (Assignment list, Instructions and Schedule & Performance Sheet) will also be sent to the students directly (E-mail).
ContentThe class is divided into four blocks: Cell Biology II, Genetics, Molecular Biology and Plant Physiology. One block lasts three weeks.

CELL BIOLOGY II:
- Cells: Cell types & staining methods, cell fusion & cell motility,
- Tissue and development: histology of mice embryos & embryogenesis
- Repair mechanisms: DNA repair & wound healing,

GENETICS:
- Yeast genetics
- Drosophila genetics
- Human genetics

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
- Molecular biology & protein crystallization
- Enzyme kinetics
- Redox potential & stability of a protein

PLANT PHYSIOLOGY:
- Plants and light
- Phytohormones and other growth factors
- Molecular biology of systemic gene silencing
- Literature and presentations

The students will also prepare short presentations (approx. 10 min) of the various topics within this course.

Prerequisites / NoticeTHE PRAKTIKUM RULES:

Your attendance is obligatory and you have to attend all 12 Praktikum days. Absences are only acceptable if you are able to provide a Doctor’s certificate. The original Dr's certificate has to be given to Dr. M. Gstaiger (HPM F43) within five days of the absence of the Praktikum day.

If there will be any exceptional or important situations then you should directly contact the Director of Studies of D-Biol, who will decide if you are allowed to miss a Praktikum day or not.

HIGHLY IMPORTANT!!

1. Due to the increased number of students, the official Praktikum registration has to be done, using myStudies, preferably at the end of HS18 but not later than Wednesday January 30, 2019.

2. Later registration is NOT possible and can NOT be accepted!

3. The course registration for FS19 is usually possible at the end of HS18 and you will obtain an E-mail from the Rectorate when the course registration using myStudies is possible.

Students can register for a practice group via myStudies. As soon as the course unit is registered in myStudies, a text box appears indicating that a group can be selected. Accordingly, students can select a group in the next step. If more than 180 students register, the surplus students will be placed on a waiting list and then allocated by the course responsible.


The Praktikum GL BioII FS19 will take place during the following days and therefore, you have to make sure already now that you do not have any other activities & commitments during these days:

PRAKTIKUM DAYS DURING FS19 (Fridays):

22.2 / 1.3 / 8.3 / 15.3 / 22.3 / 29.3 / 5.4 / 12.4 / 3.5 / 10.5 / 17.5 / 24.5

No Praktikum during the Easter break: 19.4.-26.4. 2019
