The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Methodologies currently discussed are (1) principles and methods of protein purification, including the calculation of a purification table; (2) principles, applications and safety rules in the use of radioactivity as a tool in biochemistry and cell biology; (3) principles and applications of cell culture; (4) the physical basis, methods, potentials and limitations of analytical subcellular fractionation ; and (5) morphological methods, with emphasis on molecular tracking in fixed and living cells
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
|1||To get a critical grasp on a few essential methodologies in cell and molecular biology, on which teachers have a special expertise. The course primarily aims at the understanding of basic principles and inherent limitations, so as to help students in selecting the most appropriate approach to address a specific question. This teaching further demands the quantitative analysis of the observations and the differentiation between warranted and unjustified conclusions from a particular experiment|
