Learning objectives
L'insegnamento si propone di fornire allo studente le nozioni teoriche e pratiche della biologia cellulare attraverso la dissertazione delle componenti cellulari a livello strutturale, compositivo e funzionale e del concetto di organizzazione gerarchica multilivellare. Si forniranno inoltre nozioni sulla teoria dell'evoluzione e si prenderà in rassegna la diversità della vita attraverso la prospettiva della moderna sistematica. Il corso consentirà allo studente di acquisire sia un approccio critico allo studio della diversità' della materia vivente che le nozioni propedeutiche allo studio dell'istologia e anatomia animale e della fisiologia.
