Nutrition and metabolic health (1 h)
Nutrition and Production diseases in farm animals (4 h)
Nutrition and animal product quality (2h)
Bioaccessability, bio availability, and biomarkers in nutritional status assessment (2 h)
Technological quality and its impact on nutrition (2 h)
Alternative feed ingredients nutritional and functional evaluation (3 h)
