Course Description

The purpose of this course is to leran
(1) Gene expression pathway (transcription and translation)
(2) Molecular mechanisms of the gene expression
(3) Genome evolution and biodiversity
This course relate to diplomatic policy 1 and 2.

Course Objectives

Organisms have a large variety of control systems for the appropriate gene expression. In this course, we expound on control systems of eukaryote gene expression.

Grading Policy

The learnig results are evaluated based on : tests (40%) and presentation (60%).
