Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
The project consists of complex characterization of the
background of rare inherited coagulation disorders. Source
of the samples is the Haemostasis Laboratory of the
Department. PCR is used to amplify the whole coding region
and promoter sequences of a specific gene, followed by
direct fluorescent sequencing. If possible, the found
genetic alteration is introduced to a cDNA and the
recombinant protein is expressed in a mammalian cell line
for further analysis (i.e. activity assays, metabolic
labeling).
What is the aim of the project?
Molecular genetic analysis of inherited coagulation disorders
What techniques and methods are used?
PCR , direct fluorescent sequencing.
What is the role of the student?
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
basic lab work
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
yes
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a poster
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Experience in basic molecular genetic methods (DNA
isolation PCR, electrophoresis) and computer work.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
No
