Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
  • Semestral paper - 90 hours per semester
  • Preparation for classes - 50 hours per semester
  • Preparation for exam - 50 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 56 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to provide students with current knowledge and intellectual skills in genetics, focused on the study and conservation of gene resources. Interpret these findings and specifically use them in the study of genetic diversity and their protection in gene sources.
The student can independently navigate in the given issue and is able to use the acquired knowledge in their scientific activities or other practice.
Prerequisites
The student is familiar with the issues within the scope of university studies and is willing to study independently.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Standard knowledge of biology of plants / animals within the scope of university studies.
