KurzbeschreibungEinführung in die Biologie, Systematik und Ökologie der wichtigsten Pilzgruppen. Die Kursteilnehmer(innen) untersuchen vor allem Material, das auf Exkursionen selbst gesammelt oder im Labor isoliert wurde.
LernzielKennenlernen der Hauptgruppen pilzartiger Organismen, ihrer Merkmale, Lebensweise und ökologischen Bedeutung. Erlernen von Methoden, mit denen Pilze gesammelt, mikroskopisch untersucht und identifiziert werden können.
InhaltDie Studierenden lernen die Merkmale und Besonderheiten der Pilze und pilzartigen Organismen kennen und erhalten einen Überblick über die Systematik der Ascomycota und Basidiomycota, und eventuell weiterer ausgewählter Gruppen. Die Ökologie der Pilze wird anhand von ausgewählten Pilzgemeinschaften (z.B. Holz- und Streueabbauer, Dungbewohner, Endophyten) vorgestellt. Im Rahmen eines kleinen Projekts befassen sich die Teilnehmer/innen mit pflanzenparasitischen Pilzen (vor allem Rost- und Mehltaupilzen) und lernen, wie man diese Pilze findet, mikroskopiert und bestimmt.

Auf mehreren Exkursionenen werden wir die Vielfalt und Ökologie der Pilze am natürlichen Standort studieren. Die Exkursionen dienen auch dem Sammeln von Material, an dem wir im Kurs die Mikroskopie und Präparation der Pilze üben werden.
SkriptÜbersichten und Skriptunterlagen zum Kursstoff werden abgegeben.

KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to the principles and molecular mechanisms of cell polarity, using animal cells and fungi as model systems.
LernzielThe students learn to describe the principles and molecular mechanisms of cell polarity, using different model systems as examples:
- Animal cells during epithelial and neuronal differentiation
- Fungi during morphogenesis and aging.
Based on lectures, literature reading, discussions, presentations and practical lab work the students will be able to compare experimental strategies in different model systems, and to develop open questions in the field of cell polarity. Students will also know about the mechanisms and consequences of asymmetric cell division such as those performed by stem cells and asymmetric protein functions during morphogenesis and aging.
InhaltDuring this Block-Course, the students will learn to
(1) describe and compare the principles and molecular mechanisms of cell polarity in fungi and animal cells,
(2) apply, evaluate and compare experimental strategies in the different model systems, and
(3) select the best model system to answer a particular question.

Students - in groups of 2 or max 3- will be integrated into a research project connected to the subject of the course, within one of the participating research groups.

Lectures and technical notes will be given and informal discussions held to provide you with the theoretical background.
SkriptThere will be optional papers to be read before the course start. They serve as framework orientation for the practical parts of this block course and will be made accessible to you shortly before the course starts on the relevant Moodle site.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature (review articles) will be provided during the course.
551-1129-00LUnderstanding and Engineering Microbial Metabolism Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 6.

The enrolment is done by the D-BIOL study administration.
W6 KP7PJ. Vorholt-Zambelli
KurzbeschreibungThis laboratory course has a focus on current research topics in our laboratory related to metabolic engineering, the general understanding of metabolism, and is focused particularly on C1-metabolism. Projects will be conducted in small groups.
LernzielThe course aims at introducing key principles of metabolic engineering and techniques applied in metabolism related research. The main focus of this block course is on practical work and will familiarize participants with complementary approaches, in particular genetic, biochemical and analytical techniques. Results will be presented by students in scientific presentations.
InhaltThe course and will include topics such as pathway elucidation & engineering and related ongoing research projects in the lab. Experimental work applied during the course will comprise methods such as cloning work & transformation, growth determination, enzyme activity assays, liquid-chromatography mass-spectrometry and dynamic labeling experiments.
SkriptNone
LiteraturWill be provided at the beginning of the course.
551-1711-00LTranslational Medicine and Bio-Entrepreneurship Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 30
The block course will only take place with a minimum of 10 participants.

The enrolment is done by the D-BIOL study administration.

KurzbeschreibungThe course gives students a look at the entire drug development process from bench to bedside. ETH and UZH alumni from the pharma, biotech, medtech, digital health and venture capital industry will discuss how intellectual property, regulatory and financial aspects shape this process. Student teams will develop their own business idea and pitch it to a group of entrepreneurs and investors.
LernzielStudents know the basis of the drug development process, the basis of patenting and what is required to the start a life science company. The can develop a business idea and a rough financial plan and they can it to a panel of experts.
551-1119-00LMicrobial Community Genomics and Transcriptomics Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 5.

The enrolment is done by the D-BIOL study administration.
W6 KP7GS. Sunagawa
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to current research methods in the analysis of microbial communities using Next Generation Sequencing approaches - metagenomics and metatranscriptomics. Practical experience of work in a computational laboratory and an introduction to scientific programming.
LernzielGain skills in data analysis and presentation for oral and written reports. Lectures introducing state-of-the-art in respective research areas and community microbiology, which is the target of ongoing research. Start to assess current literature.
