  • Prerequisiti: To successfully address the study of topics related to the Molecular program and to understand the contents of the lectures and achieve the educational objectives students must possess basic knowledge in Mathematics, Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Cytology, basic Biochemistry.
  • Obiettivi: LEARNING OUTCOMES: The course is subdivided into two modules. In the first module (5CFU) it is proposed to provide students with the basic notions of Molecular Biology, aimed at understanding the structure and function of nucleic acids, DNA duplication and learn basic molecular biology techniques. In the II (5CFU) module the molecular mechanisms controlling transcription and transcription regulation and translation. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: At the end of the entire course students must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of: a) the structures of DNA/RNA; b) the molecular mechanism of DNA duplication; the molecular mechanism of transcription; the molecular mechanism of translation. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: The aim of the course is to develop in the student the ability to apply the acquired knowledge to understand other courses, in the continuation of studies, and in developing original ideas in interesting research contexts. MAKING JUDGEMENTS: At the end of the course the student will have acquired a high degree of independent judgment, which will enable him to tackle the most complex topics of cell and organ molecular biology with awareness and critical ability, an indispensable tool mostly in the choice of subsequent studies. COMMUNICATION SKILLS: The student will be able to illustrate in a synthetic and analytical way the main concepts and highlight the most relevant processes of Molecular Biology, in particular the mechanism governing gene expression both in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. He/She will be able to use the specific language of the subject. LEARNING SKILLS: The student must be able to read and understand Molecular Biology textbook and scientific research publications in the sector. He will also be able to choose and correlate different aspects of the subject to ask appropriate questions on the different topics of Molecular Biology.
