Summary of the course Scientific Writing and Presentation

YouTube Video: YouTube.com/watch?v=ZhV62JurBIA 1

Course description The objective of this course is to teach students how to write a paper, an abstract in English for publication in a scientific journal and to teach students the oral presentation and poster presentation skills needed to present their results at international scientific conferences. Moreover, the students will learn how to communicate with editors and reviewers of the journals. The course includes both lectures and tutorials with a number of in-class writing exercises and discussion of good and not-so-good writing practices. The tutor will particularly emphasize graphical organization, drafting and finalizing research publication figures and posters. The course will finish with an in-class poster presentation with oral discussion. Students who complete this course will learn what to do to get their research published and how best to present their work at a scientific conference.

Summary of the course Application of Viral Techniques and Introduction to Molecular Virology

YouTube Video: YouTube.com/watch?v=yz5yUCrrFeE 2

Course description This course involves a comprehensive overview of replication, integration and transcription mechanisms 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 lectures 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. Furthermore, this course provides a comparative analysis of viral applications in modern biotechnology, neuroscience and medicine which could be useful for students interested in these subjects. This is a typical lecture course in which topics are narrated by the instructor.
