Course Description

This course involves a comprehensive overview of replication, integration and transcription mechanisms of both RNA- and DNA-containing viruses of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It is therefore primarily intended for undergraduate or graduate students already familiar with basic molecular biology.

The course will focus on regulatory molecular biology mechanisms in order to give the students a broad overview as well as aid them to understand deeper signaling pathway interactions, solve genetic problems and ideate their future projects. This course may meet the needs of advanced undergraduate students with interests in molecular biology and virology.

At the same time, it may serve as a refresher course in molecular biology for graduate students willing to explore replication and transcription regulation from different, often extreme angles which in viruses often go beyond basic mechanisms. This is a typical lecture course in which topics are narrated by the instructor.

Assessment Format 1. Final exam (presentation + Q&A): 80%

2. In-class work: 10%

3. Attendance: 10%
