Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Forensic Genetics
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the Project is introducing of the visiting Student into molecular techniques used in Molecular Medicine and Forensic Genetics, especially in paternity testing and genetic investigation of biological material collected on crime scene.
What techniques and methods are used?
Forensic Genetics apply various methods of DNA isolation and quantification, PCR techniques (mainly PCR multiplex), various techniques of electrophoresis and DNA minisequencing or sequencing.
What is the role of the student?
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Participation and self-development.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
We intend a little theoretical teaching of the Student during her/his stay in our laboratories.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
No special requirements are demanded, but essential orientation in Molecular Biology methods are welcome, knowleadge of pipeting rules. The parts of the projects are also clinical and in lab. Each student involved into Project.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
