    Molekulare Biologie / Molecular Biology

    • Vst.-Nr.: 06102000
    • Vst.-Kürzel: 07-MS2
    • Vst.-Art: Lecture
    • SWS: 3
    • ECTS: 10
    • Prüfungsart: Written Examination
    • Semester: Winter Semester in German, Summer Semester in English
    • Modulverantwortung: i.a. Gross, Rudel
    • Inhalte: The lecture series is a joint activity of the chairs of Cell- and Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Biophysics and Bioinformatics and deals with concepts of modern molecular biology from the point of view of these different disciplines.
      The section Cell Biology (app. a quarter of the lecture) mainly regards the eukaryotic cell and intends to elucidate the vast diversity in structure and function of molecules, organelles and cells in addition to basic principles of modern molecular cell biology.
      The bioinformatics section (app. a quarter of the lecture) contains a large amount of examples for applications which allow the investigation of the molecular biology of a cell with bioinformatics tools. We closely adhere to the contents of the book „Essential Cell Biology“ and present many clear and useful examples for the application of our tools working on the topics of the other three chairs. Our vision: bioinformatics essentially is molecular biology based on computing technology (time consuming „wet“ experiments can be planned more easily and thus bioinformatics saves precious time).
      The microbiological section (app. a quarter of the lecture) deals with basic molecular aspects of prokaryotic cells. Key aspects include the organization of the bacterial genome, the transcription and translation machinery, mechanisms of regulation of gene expression, transport of small molecules and macromolecules, cell division and differentiation, bacterial motility and chemotaxis, signal transduction and bacterial communication mechanisms.

    Mikrobielle Ökologie

    • Vst.-Nr.: 06110060
    • Vst.-Art: Vorlesung
    • SWS: 1
    • ECTS: 3
    • Semester: Sommersemester in German language          
    • Modulverantwortung: Gross
    • Inhalte: Die Vorlesung vermittelt Grundlagen der Wechselwirkung von Mikroorganismen mit ihrer abiotischen und vor allem biotischen Umwelt. Einen Schwerpunkt werden dabei Bakterien darstellen, die in symbiontischen, kommensalen und pathogenen Beziehungen zu verschiedenen Wirtsorganismen (u.a. andere Bakterien, Insekten, Pilze, Würmer, Säugetiere) stehen. Die Vorlesung ergänzt damit den Schwerpunkt Infektionsbiologie des Studiengangs „Zelluläre und Molekulare Mikrobiologie / Infektionsbiologie“, bei dem vor allem humanpathogene Erreger und ihre Pathogenitätsmechanismen vorgestellt werden, und versucht grundlegende Konzepte der Wechselwirkung von Bakterien mit verschiedenen Wirten zu erarbeiten.

    Genregulation und Signaltransduktion

    • Vst.-Nr.: 0611000  
    • Vst.-Art: Vorlesung
    • SWS: 1
    • ECTS: 3
    • Semester: Wintersemester in German language
    • Modulverantwortung: Gross
    • Inhalte: In der Vorlesung werden wichtige Aspekte der Genregulation und Signaltransduktion in Prokaryonten abgehandelt. Dabei werden sowohl die Regulation der Genexpression auf Transkriptionsebene als auch posttranskriptionelle regulatorische Mechanismen besprochen. Ein spezieller Schwerpunkt stellt die Bedeutung regulatorischer Phänomene bei pathogenen Mikroorganismen dar. Die Vorlesung ergänzt und vertieft entsprechende Aspekte der Ringvorlesung „Molekulare Biologie“ (Vst-Nr. 0610200) und der Spezialvorlesung „Infektionsbiologie“ (Vst-Nr. 0610220).
