Prerequisites: Propaedeutic courses are all those characterizing the first and second year of the Degree in Molecular Biology (in particular Genetics I, Genetic engineering, and Molecular Biology I.
Target skills and knowledge: Specific skills and knowledges in advanced genetics are supplied with particular reference to the following subjects: population genetics, molecular evolution, genomes organization., mobile genetic elements, extranuclear Inheritance, maternal Inheritance and maternal effects, genomic imprinting, mutations, DNA damage repair, recombination.
Examination methods: The examination is conducted in written form (exercises/problems and open questions). The individual report on the practical experience maturated during the laboratory training is also evaluated.
Assessment criteria: Student performances are evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
1) knowledge and understanding of facts, concepts and principles
2) logic and methodological rigour
3) appropriate descriptive vocabulary is used
