The course covers the regulation of gene expression, which translates the information contained in the genome into function, by adjusting the levels and activities of mRNAs and proteins to the needs of specific cells, tissues and environments. A particular emphasis is given on experimental methods.
The course covers in detail molecular mechanisms of cancer development with emphasis on cell cycle control, genome stability, oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes.
Training in hemato-oncology.
Analysis and genetic manipulation of hematopoietic progenitor cells.
Morphological recognition of main hematopoietic lineages.
