Our department participates on bachelor-level international program Biological Chemistry with the following courses in English:

KMB/219  Introduction to Cell Biology (guarantor and lecturer: doc. Mgr. Tomáš Doležal, Ph.D.)
Mandatory and the first course of the second year of the program held in České Budějovice, taught in block of 4 days usually the third week of September (the very first week of the second academic year). The goal of this course is to introduce students to molecular basis of life and describe the cell as a basic unit of life. Course will build on the historical aspects of discoveries leading to our current knowledge in genetics, molecular and cellular biology and explore the molecular mechanisms behind development and evolution.

KMB/770  Methods in Molecular Biology (guarantor: doc. Mgr. Tomáš Doležal, Ph.D., lecturer: Mgr. Lenka Pivarčiová)
Mandatory practical laboratory course taught in one-week blocks during the 2nd and 3rd week of the second academic year (usually the last week of Septemebr and the first week of October). Students are introduced to the practice of basic methods of molecular biology as nucleic acid isolation, PCR, electrophoresis, cloning and sequencing.

KMB/758  Molecular Biology and Genetics I (guarantor and lecturer: doc. Alexander William Bruce, Ph.D.)
Mandatory winter-semester course introducing students into molecular biology of the cell. Basic molecular biology mechanisms in cells will be reviewed and overview of applications of molecular biology techniques will be given.

KMB/605  Introduction to Bioinformatics (guarantor: prof. Ing. Miroslav Oborník, Ph.D.)
Mandatory summer-semester course introducing students into techniques and applications of the bioinformatics in the molecular-biological and biochemical research as well as in the biotechnology.
