Objectives and Content

The student shall achieve knowledge on animal research and demonstrate that they can apply this knowledge in a new context, for example when planning own experiments or when evaluating or give input to plans of animals experiments. They must achieve knowledge necessary and useful when they are performing procedures in practice or evaluate suggested practical solutions.


Recommended Previous Knowledge

Student should have some knowledge of anatomy and physiology. LAS301 is an advantage but not a formal demand

Resultados del aprendizaje

After the education the students shall have achieved the following learning outcome.


  • Basic physiology, reproduction and behaviour that influence research
  • Dietary needs, practical feeding. Storage and preparation of food.
  • Describe studies showing that fish have similar properties that we find on other "higher" animals that legitimates need for protection as a research object in a similar way than for mammals.
  • Describe common disease in fish and how they can influence research.
  • When relevant, describe how modulation of genome can influence phenotype
  • Suggest appropriate routine for housing and husbandry of the species taking considerations both to fish and research.
  • Describe how photoperiod can influence animal experiments
  • Describe Biological consequences of acclimatising, habituation and training
  • Pain recognition in fish.
