Faglig innhold

The lectures will cover the organization and major features of the regulation of the function of the human genome, such as gene expression, replication, chromatin remodeling and genome maintenance. Consequences of mutations and polymorphisms, and impacts of genes and environment on major common diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, vascular and coronary disease, will be covered. Basic principles of extracellular and intracellular signaling systems will also be included. Methods of DNA analysis, gene technology and applied bioinformatics will be discussed.

- describe the organization of the human genome and its functional regulation (i.e. replication, gene expression, genome maintenance, and signal transduction principles)
- describe the impact of genes, inheritance and environment on disease
- understand how normal cellular processes change, fail or are destroyed by disease development, in particular for common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease
- collect relevant background information about topics within molecular medicine
- read and present scientific papers
