The main goal of Practical classes in Cell Biology is to reveal to the students how the living cell works and teach them how to handle the microscope. Both will give them the background for the subjects in the upcoming years. The students will work with animal and plant cells, with Drosophila melanogaster or Paramecium caudatum. Themes: Microscop, Osmosis, Genotype and Fenotype, Cell counting, Observation of Paramecium caudatum, Mitosis

The credit from the Practical classes (PC) will be recognized after fulfilment of the following conditions:

1) 100% presence in all practical classes. One PC can be excused in case of severe health or family issues that must be confirmed by a doctor or a lawyer.  The conditions might change regarding the actual COVID-19 situation.

2) On-time delivery of the Laboratory manual with filled protocols to be checked (after the last practical class)

3) Pass the credit test that consists of the practical part (student performs one of the tasks from the previous practical classes and fills in the protocol) and answer 3 theoretical questions from practical classes.
