The Summer School Advenced Molecular Biology Methods in Biotechnology is organized as a PhD level course intended for graduate students in life sciences. This year´s aim is to explain how usefull is molecular biology, especially in biotehnology. The focus of this School is to explain the interactions between the basic building blocks of a cell and to show how to use this knowledge for cell manipulation and application in research and also industry and medicine. Lecturers are comming from different areas of research which will give participants a good overview of the various disciplines and it will show them how to use the knowledge from diferent areas to solve scientific problems. Lectures will cover the proper design of experiments, the techniques used for molecular detection and manipulation, and the use of the resulting products in industry and medicine. Summer school will also give option to all the participants to introduce their work. At the beginning random study groups will be formed with the aim to disscuse study topics daily and to work on mini projects. At the end of school there will be a written exam.

Literature: Course notes available on July 15, 2011 on our web page. Students will also get their own copy on USB in Piran (we are trying to be green and to save the environment).

Exam: 2 hour written exam after the completion of the course

Total: 50 hours of lectures, project work and laboratory demonstrations.

Certificate: The students who have completed the course and passed the exam will obtain a certificate for the PhD level course “ Advenced Molecular Biology Methods in Biotechnology ”.
