Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:
1) reproduce and explain the basic macro-molecular composition of the cell
2) reproduce and explain the basic principles of genetic information (replication, transcription, translation)
3) reproduce and explain basic recombinant DNA techniques
4) reproduce and explain the basic principles of membranes
5) reproduce and explain the basic principles of cell compartments and microscopy
6) reproduce and explain the basic principles of protein transport and intracellular membrane trafficking
Omschrijving During the course the basic processes of cell biology and molecular biology will be addressed. The molecular biology lectures includebtopics like molecular composition of the cell, DNA structure and replication, RNA and transcription, protein synthesis, and basic recombinant DNA techniques. The cell biology lectures include topics like cell membranes, cell compartments, vesicle transport inside the cell, cell cycle, and mitosis and meiosis.

PLEASE NOTE
Biology and Life Science & Technology (old curriculum) course units are only accessible for students of those degree programmes. Students from other degree programmes who would like to participate in Biology course units are obliged to contact one of the academic advisors before registration. After this contact, students have to request admission from the Board of Examiners Biology/Life Science & Technology. Failing to follow this procedure results in immediate unenrollment without prior notification.
