Syllabus
Prerequisites: In order to successfully follow the course, the student must have acquired skills and knowledge that come from the basic courses: mathematics, physics, general chemistry, inorganic, organic and biochemistry, biology. Students need to possess at least a basic English knowledge and the ability to use the web for research and information management.
Target skills and knowledge: Students will learn the main characteristics of the prokaryotic cell and its functioning, the characteristics of bacterial growth and the influence of the environment on the kinetics of microbial growth. The equipment of the microbiology laboratory and the main techniques for the isolation and characterization of food (wine)-related microorganisms will be discussed.
Students will acquire knowledge about microorganisms involved in winemaking. Particularly yeast, lactic and acetic acid bacteria directly involved in winemaking, will be debated. The role of each group of microorganisms during the fermentation process and the environmental conditions that can interfere and modify their development will be highlighted. The microbial management in modern enology and recent research developments in this field will be discussed, as well.
Examination methods: An assessment is scheduled for each module.
General microbiology: the exam consists of a written test (questions with multiple choice answers and open questions).
Wine microbiology: the assessment consist of an oral exam.
There are no ongoing assessments.
Assessment criteria: The judgment will be based on the verification of the level of understanding and assimilation of the topics covered in class and on the acquisition the related skills. The ability to apply the knowledge learned during the courses to real situations of wine productions will be assessed, as well.
