  • Extension and application of the acquired theory to the experimental work in two fields of Cellular- and Molecular microbiology (called competences) in each course; Acquisition of practical knowledge in documentation and presentation (including discussion) of scientific data; ability to work in a team; getting lab experiences by working on real research projects.
  • Live long learning competence
Grading through:
  • oral presentation
  • Poster
Is requisite for:
Responsible for this module:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Taube
  • All institutes of the University of Lübeck
  • MitarbeiterInnen des Instituts
  • n.n.: Self-study, independent literature search
  • offered only in English

All practical courses must be approved by Prof. Taube 4 weeks (!) in advance.

The results are presented by means of one poster and one short oral presentation. Poster and oral presentation will be graded individually and, if both practical courses are passed successfully, the grades will be averaged. The total duration of the oral examination is 60 minutes.
