Syllabus
Prerequisites: The student should have basic knowledge of Biology, be familiar with the main feature of eukariotyc cell; be familiar with basic cellular biology and cellular biochemistry.
Target skills and knowledge: The student will acquire basic understanding of the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene transcription and translation, with special attention to the control of gene expression. The student will also acquire the basis of recombinant DNA technology, with special emphasis to the practical aspects of genetic engineering and biotechnologies. The student will acquire also the basic concepts dealing with DNA structure, cell cycle, Mendelian genetics, genetic linkage, pedigrees and population genetics. Learn to know the major animal groups, having relevance in veterinary medicine, and the evolutionary processes that generated the current diversity of phyla. Finally the student will gain the basic concepts of structures and organization in the following tissues: covering epithelia (including skin and skin derivatives), glandular epithelia, connective, muscular and nervous. The student will acquire knowledge of molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during development; the study of foetal membranes in animals of veterinary interest will be of particular significance.
Examination methods: Written examination
Assessment criteria: The student will be evaluated on the basis of his/her acquired knowledge on the main biological process at molecular levels. The knowledge of the main modern applications of molecular biology techniques will be also evaluated. The student will be also evaluated for the capability to recognize histological slides showed during the course as well as for the mastery in systematic zoology. More generally the student will be evaluated on the basis of the knowledge acquired during the course and on the ability to use and present the concepts and topics learned.
