Mass Spectrometry and Molecular Analysis

Applied OMICS technologies (transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics)

Integrated course, 4.00 ECTS


Course content

Transcriptomics/(epi-) genomics/proteomics/glycomics/lipidomics/metabolomics: Biological Question, Experimental Design, Experiment, Image Analysis, Normalization, Data Mining, Verification and Interpretation; on the basis of concrete tasks

Learning outcomes

(1) The students are able to describe the advantages and disadavatages of methods of molecular techniques ( above all in the fields of molecular diagnostics, nanotechnology, OMICS- technologies, molecular biological and gene technological applications.) (2) They can choose the appropriate question- specific molecular techniques, plan and carry out additional experiements, evaluate, validate and interpret the results. (3) They are able to discuss and apply measures for quality assurance. (4) They can plan and discuss developmental steps in the production of recombinant proteins (medications, vaccines, food additives).
