ATTENDING STUDENTS
Unita' didattica: Strategia di ricerca nello studio delle malattie parassitarie
Course syllabus
Experimental design for the research in parasitology: the objective is to provide students with a general overview of the scientific method. Lessons will be focused on bio-molecular research strategies and experimental designs.
Organization of the course:
1) reading scientific papers and writing material & methods
2) designing research projects
3) how to handle and store biological samples
4) research strategies; molecular biology and parasitology landmarks

Bio-molecular application in parasitology: the objective is to bring the students deep in to the application of the scientific method of parasitic and infectious diseases.
Organization of the course:
1) genes and genomes of parasitic organisms
2) symbiosis and microbiota
3) symbiotic control and paratrangenesis
4) Wolbachia: manipulation of host reproduction and control of filariasis
5) systematic and molecular phylogenesis
