Case Study in Biotechnology (Online) University of Bordeaux
The aim of this course is to acquire on desk skills necessary forexperimental plan. After studying this course, you should be able to: - Analyze and decode “materials and methods” from case studyarticles - Propose appropriate in vitro experimental approaches to concretesituation - Design experiments to reproduce published results - Use collaborative instruments for group work - Communicate using proper scientific terms and presentation.
> Applicants should have basic knowledges of: - Cellular neurobiology and, - Biotechnology and bioinformatics, recombinant DNA methodologies.
> Assessment procedure is based on: - Continuous individual activities submitted during the course (20%); - Group experimental design project (30%) and; - Individual final exam (30%). The final exam is based on material covered in lectures, assignments,readings and other online activities.
> This course is designed to develop critical thinking andexperimental design skills in the specific context of cell andmolecular neurosciences. You will use previous learning in new andconcrete situations. Case study articles will be discussed to supportthe experimental design project that will be required. > Experimental approaches discussed will include: - Reverse genetics, - RNA interference, - Site directed mutagenesis, - Fusion proteins, - Expression vectors, - Immunolocalization, and - Protein-protein interactions (immunoprecipitation, pull-down,two-hybrid, energy transfer, dominant negative).
> The course is structured as flipped classroom in which short video lectures and support materials are viewed by students at home before the video conference class sessions which are devoted to questions, exercises and discussions. > Specific individual and group activities including participation to chat and forum, quiz, essays and projects will be submitted by students on scheduled deadlines. > 150 hours: - 12 hours of lectures. - 138 self-study hours.
