Study Molecular Epidemiology and Genetics of Toxoplasma gondii using Multiplex PCR-RFLP and Whole Genome Sequence Analysis University of Sao Paulo
The development of molecular biology revolutionized the way investigators conduct research. Techniques such as polymerase chain reaction, sequencing, gene knockdown and others became routine tools for researchers on molecular biology field. However, researchers from other areas may be not familiarized with such techniques. Considering the importance these techniques for science development is mandatory that the students from the graduate program in Anatomy have a minimal knowledge on molecular biology, allowing them to interpret publications with molecular data and to consider multiple approaches while developing their own research projects.
Provide to graduate students: theoretical and practical concepts on molecular biology techniques, with emphasis on mammalian development applications; knowledge to interpret the results generated by molecular biology assays; a critical view of molecular biology techniques that can be used in scientific investigation, development of the necessary skills to use molecular biology and to critically analyze publications with molecular data.
Students will be assessed through participation in classes and the presentation of papers.
Essentials of molecular biology, nucleic acids extraction, polymerase chain reaction, restriction fragment length polymorphism, nucleic acid sequencing, real time PCR, high resolution melting, microarrays, genotyping, western blot, transgenesis and gene silencing.
