Molecular Biology and Genetics

General information

Molecular Biology and Genetics is a Bachelor’s study programme that aims to extend theoretical and practical skills of modern biology for molecular and cellular biology and general as well as special genetics. The basis of the field is the description of the structure and function of living material on molecular, cellular, tissues, organ, organismal and population levels in the courses such as Cellular and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Anatomy, Histology, Plant and Animal Physiology, Microbiology and Immunology. An integral part of the education are also supporting biological study programmes, such as Plant and Animal Systems and Evolution, and chemical disciplines including the practical courses, such as Inorganic, Organic, Analytical and Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry and Mathematics.

A successful graduate is able to

  • master the knowledge and skills in basic biological disciplines (general biology, genetics, molecular biology, anthropology, microbiology, immunology, biostatistics, physiology of organisms)
  • master the knowledge and skills in biochemistry and chemistry (general biochemistry, enzymology, biochemics methods, inorganic and organic chemistry)
  • use the knowledge of the structure and functions of a genome on all basic levels of a living system (virus genome, bacterial genome, eukaryotic genome)
  • perform practical methods in molecular biology and in genetic disciplines

Graduate employment

Although most of the students are supposed to continue in a Master’s study programme, Bachelor graduates are well educated for practical work. They can get a job in agriculture, veterinary medicine and food industry institutions. They can well participate in the laboratory work in research, development, especially in the introduction of new methods, innovations and routine work in the field of molecular genetics, including the assessment of the results. However, they are not qualified for independent research work. The aim of the study is to provide graduates with skills necessary either for performing practical work within the field of modern experimental biology or further education in the field of molecular biology and genetics.
