Acquiring knowledge and understanding.
The objective is for the students to knowledge over the recent techniques of genome engineering. In particular, regarding the CRISPR-cas9 system and its derivatives. Acquisition of the knowledge for the potential applications of these techniques in the biomedical and biotechnology field. Development of critical sense regarding legal and ethical issues related to the employment of these techniques in particular for human reproduction purposes.
Applying knowledge and understanding.
Through guided analysis of key experiments for the molecular understanding of the development of the science in the field of the genomic engineering, the students will strengthen their competence in addressing the experimental study and application of the techniques of genomic engineering.
