Course content
Lectures 1. CYTOGENETIC, METHODS OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY Cytogenetic, chromosomes, karyotypes. Mutation - genetic, genomic (numeric aberation), structural aberation, syndroms. Meiosis, gametogenesis, recombination of genetic information. Metods of molecular biology DNA isolation, PCR, electrophoresis, restriction analysis of DNA, sequencing. 2. MENDELIAN AND NONMENDELIAN INHERITANCE Genetic of quantitative trait on the level of individuum. Mendelian inheritance, Mendel laws and conditions, terminology, monohybridism, dihybridism. Gene interactions. Genetic linkage, Morgan´s laws. Inheritance and sex - sex linked, sex influenced, sex limited and sex controlled. Nonmendelian inheritance maternal inheritance, maternal effect, inheritance linked to infectious agens, genome imprinting, trinucleotid repeats, complex traits. 3. QUANTITATIVE GENETIC, POPULATION GENETIC, EVOLUTION Genetic of quantitative trait on the level of population, polygene inheritance. Hardy-Weinberg law, genetic equalibrium and conditions, changes in genetic equalibrium. Evolution mechanisms, Darwinism, Lamarcism, microevolution, speciation, macroevolution. Practicals 1. Molecular biology preparing tissues for DNA issolation.Genetic example monohybridism 2. Genetic examples dihybridis, polymorphic genes, examples for blood groups in humans and animals. 3. Molecular biology DNA isolation, PCR 4. Genetic examples gene interactions, genetic linkage 5. Molecular biology restriction reaction of PCR product. Genetic examples genetic and sex, nonmendelian inheritance 6. Molecular biology - electrophoresis of DNA, visualisation and evaluation. Genetic examples population genetics, quantitative genetic

Learning outcomes
The goal of study is to extend the knowledge of genetics obtained at secondary schools to get the essentials for subsequent study of applied biological disciplines taught at the Faculty of Veterinary Hygiene and Ecology - bachelors. The study will be aimed at the chromosomal basis of inheritance, Mendelian inheritance patterns, population genetics and application of genetic laws in medicine and agriculture. In practical exercises, emphasis is laid on genetics, mitotic cell division and environmental factors affecting the bioplasm.
