When? Where? How?
What does your genome contain – do you really share genes with fruit flies? This course is for you that want to gain knowledge in how you can find information about DNA and the things your DNA codes for, the proteins. You get to learn how different sources of information can be used to answer the questions; what does DNA and proteins actually do? You also get knowledge about how you can compare different proteins and genes to find similarities between them. The course will also give you an introduction to evolutionary trees, which can be used to find out which organisms that are more or less related to each other.
This course is based on flexible studies; there are no lectures or compulsory meetings. Due to this, the student has to take more own responsibility throughout the course.
