Intended learning outcomes

The course gives basic knowledge about how different methods can be used for studying cell and tissue structure and function. After the course the student will be able to:

  • explain how cells and tissues should be prepared for further analysis
  • for a given cell biological problem to choose appropriate analytical method
  • explain the advantages and disadvantages of different analytical methods
  • explain the theory behind the chosen preparation method for cells/tissue
  • explain the theory behind the chosen method of analysis
  • perform a theoretical project included literature search
  • account for project work in written and oral
  • defend their own presentation and oppose to the work of others

Course content

Tissue and cell preparation for microscopy.
Biological markers used in methods discussed within the course.
Fluorometry, cytometry and flow cytometry.
Cell culture and cell separation techniques.
Chemiluminescence.
Electron microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, ratio imaging and confocal microscopy: construction and function of the equipment.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, practical exercises on the basis of problem-based learning as well as a theoretical project and seminars.
