Are you fascinated by what the CRISPR/Cas9 and other modern technologies in molecular biology can offer? Would you like to expand your bioinformatics skills and be involved in cancer research? This is your chance! Apply for the exchange programme Molecular & Cell Biology!

About this minor

This exchange programme is part of the bachelor programme Biology and Medical Laboratory Research. During this semester you will learn more about molecular biology and cell biology, two major pillars of contemporary scientific research in biology and medicine. Modern molecular technologies like next-generation sequencing, real-time PCR and CRISPR/Cas9, greatly facilitate scientists in their research. It is therefore important to gain knowledge and skills related to these technologies.

This practice-based exchange programme will let you discover the CRISPR/Cas9 technology, practice bioinformatics tools that help you in your molecular cloning procedure and learn various aspects of oncogenesis (cancer development). You will also have the opportunity to improve your scientific writing skills in English, and learn to set up and conduct a scientific experiment in the field of cancer research.
