Kursens syfte
Kursens lärandemål After completing the course, the students should be able to
- describe the different kinds of regulatory (non-coding) RNAs in development, disease and evolution, and their mechanism of action,
- describe and critically evaluate the application of emerging experimental strategies for the study of regulatory RNAs
- transfer the knowledge acquired in the course into their specific projects and fields of research.
Kursens innehåll The course will cover key concepts in regulatory RNAs and their mechanisms of action. The following themes will be covered: Different kinds of regulatory (non-coding) RNAs in eukaryotes, regulatory RNAs in development and disease, regulatory RNAs in virus and bacteria, evolution of regulatory RNAs, RNA transport and RNA methodologies (bioinformatics and emerging experimental strategies).
Arbetsformer The learning activities include lectures, seminars, group discussions and presentations. The students will present themselves with short chalk talks on the first day. They will be divided into groups and will have 3 sessions designated for groups discussions and brainstorming to transfer and apply the new knowledge acquired during the course into their specific projects and fields of research. Each group will present and discuss their conclusions from these discussions to all the other students and course directors.
Examination Examination according to the intended learning outcomes of the course will take place in form of a presentation, where the course participants will discuss the transfer of the knowledge acquired during the course into their specific projects and fields of research. Each course participant will be assessed individually.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel Scientific articles according to the recommendations from the lecturers and course organisers.
Obligatoriska moment Lectures, seminars, group discussions and presentations are mandatory. Compensation in case of absence according to the instructions of the course director.
