SK.Bio.7003: Isolation and characterization of fungal contaminations from food or other sources (3 C, 2 WLH)
Learning outcome, core skills: The students deepen their present laboratory praxis by analyzing mold contaminations on food or other sources using recent methods of genetics and molecular cell biology. After passing the module the students can independently plan and perform experiments, document primary data, investigate the literature, and know how unknown mold fungi can be indentified.
Courses and examinations
Practical course: Isolation and characterization of fungal contaminations from food or other sources (2 WLH)
Examination: Minutes / Lab report (max. 20 pages)
Examination requirements: In the report the students should describe from which food or source they have isolated and characterized which mold fungus and which methods were used for characterization. They should describe reproducibly the experiments performed by means of performance, description of the results with illustrations and conclusion. With the help of literature research they should discuss their results. The report should be written in English.
