We recommend you to take the course BIOR79, Methods in Molecular Biology However, you may instead choose BIOR85, Immunology or BIOR58, Neurobiology, or instead. You need to inform Tina Ledje, christina [dot] ledje [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se, which one you choose.

Check the list of courses offered by the department of Biology. Discuss with Tina if needed.

One term is divided into two periods. Normally you take one course of 15 credits each period and two courses each term.

The schedules will be available on the course web-pages around 5 weeks before the courses start. Please note that most courses have compulsory activities almost every day. Do not plan e.g. travelling on “school days” because if you miss a compulsory activity, without a legitimate reason, you may not be able to complete the course until the following year.
