Analysis of gene expression and function
4.00 credits
39.0 h
Main themes
The main topics are those of the analysis of the interaction between DNA and proteins, the study of gene expression, including manipulation of the expression level, cell imaging, receptor function, and electrophysiology. The integrated use of the tools presented will be further illustrated by recent scientific publications.
Learning outcomes

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 At the end of this course, students will be able to use the tools needed to study the function of genes and their expression. Students will also be able to use the tools needed to investigate the subcellular localization and function of the proteins encoded by these genes.
Control, manipulation and analysis of gene expression (transcriptomics); detection of gene expression and function by imaging; characterization of protein function.
Teaching methods
Evaluation methods
Written examination on theoretical issues, data analysis, and methodological choices based on issues raised.
The final mark is the arithmetic mean of all questions. When a student has a final mark between 9/20 and 10/20 after correction, the lecturers review together the exam copy to decide whether the mark should be rounded down or up according the overall evaluation of the copy.
