Next time in January 2019 Yeast genetics. Introduction to yeast genetics and cell biology.
We will introduce you to the basic techniques used when emplying the yeast model system to answer a biological question. You will set up and interpret genetic crosses, generate synchronous populations of cells and examine various parameters thereof. You will also examine the behaviour of components of the cytoskeleton during the cell cycle. In addition, there will be a brief introductory lecture and you will be asked to read and present a paper which uses the techniques that you will learn. You will be assessed based on your performance at the bench during the course and your comprehension and presentation of the assigned paper.
Please note that you are not allowed to inscribe in your own group!
Note that 3 practical courses are mandatory for all EDMS students and that they have the priority; each course has between 2 to 4 possible slots.
Therefore, please do not register by yourself to this course, this will be done by the EDMS program administrator!
