All living cells must regulate the expression of their genes in order to adapt to changes in the environment as well as develop into differentiated cells and tissues. Such gene regulation occurs in a number of different ways, e.g. by altering the amount of mRNA transcribed from a DNA sequence, by mRNA degradation or by inhibition of translation. This course focuses on how gene expression is regulated in bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes, but also provides theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular biology and genetic methods – ranging from small to large scale. The course also discusses applications and ethical aspects of molecular biology and genetics.
