Course content
Study of each group of traits in animals and plants. Basics of consequenial genetic disciplines - biochemical genetics, immunogenetics, genetics of reproduction, population genetics of qualitative and quantitative traits, genetic principles of breeding and hybridization of animals and plants, genetics of health and resistance. The theme of the genetic diversity and saving of gene resources. Molecular and chemical principles, cytogenetics, Mendelian genetics and its modification, the analysis of genetic variability.
