Course information

Prerequisite subject: Microscopic Anatomy II., Basic Immunology, Molecular Cell Biology I.
Credits: 2
Attendance: 75% of the practicals
Exam: written test in the examination period


The Department of Genetics, Cell- and Immunobiology offers Genetics and Genomics course for 2nd year English Dentistry students in the second semester.
In the case of having Genetics credits from other university, claim for exemption has to be handed to Dr. Hargita Hegyesi (tutor) not later than 28th of February

Genetics and Genomics course provides basic knowledge on general and human genetics and genomics. The course has lecture and practice (laboratory) parts. According to the Academic and Examination Rules, the students must visit at least 75% of the practicals. This is the requirement for the validity of the semester. More than three absences from the practice, invalidate the semester, no signature is given. There are no extra practices. In the case of an acute illness, students may attend other practices with the permission of the tutor.

In the first semester you have two midterm tests on Moodle (15 multiple choice questions for 15 points): on the 5th and the 10th week during the practice. Both practice and lecture knowledge will be tested.

Five times in the lectures, you can also collect points based on three questions (max 15 in total). On the lectures, students can answer three questions on a zoom interface, so please have a suitable tool (phone, etc.) to participate. The current zoom link is provided in-situ at the presentation.

Maximum 3 bonus scores are offered for the two midterms:

Achievement for the two midterms + lecture points

Bonus scores









At the end of the semester your performance will be evaluated according the total scores. During the semester maximum 3 bonus scores can be collected and will be added to the exams scores as bonus scores (see below). Bonus points are only credited to those who have more than 50 % of the exam scores.

Competition (written) will be on the 13th week, every student with 2 bonus scores (calculated from the two midterms and lecture points) is invited.

Examination info

The semester is finished by a written exam (multiple choice and essay questions, family tree, kariogram, evaluation of molecular genetic studies etc.)  For passing (Grade 2-5), you have to reach more than 50 % of the exam scores. The final exam grade will be calculated from the sum of exam scores and bonus scores. The exam questions are based on the e-book, lecture and practice presentations and handouts. Please, see “Exam” tab on our webpage in the examination period, for more information about the exams.

The exam days will be published one month before the beginning of the examination period. Signing up and modification of the exam days can be arranged exclusively online by the students’ registration system (NEPTUN). If you want to change your exam day, first you have to cancel your earlier sign up. Please consider the registration deadlines for the exams. The time, the place and number of students may change after your registration, so check these parameters before the exam.
