Module VM tumor cytogenetics and tumor genetics

Students should acquire an in-depth knowledge of tumor genetics and tumor cytogenetics, and learn about and apply the latest tumor (cyto) genetic methods.


• Pathogenetic basis of tumor disease development

•Theoretical and practical knowledge within the field of clinical tumor genetics of classical and cytogenetic and molecular (cyto) genetic methods.


• Preparation of biomaterials for cytogenetic and molecular (cyto) genetic diagnostics

• Practical skill in microscopy (light and fluorescence microscopy)

• Scientific work and presentation of own findings and current literature


• Understanding of the genetic causes of tumor disease in the clinical context, and how these diseases are detected

• Competence in molecular- and cytogenetic methods
