Learning objectives
The course provides knowledge on analytical metabolic and biochemical methods for monitoring the effects of physical exercise on health and well-being. Students will learn molecular biology methods potentially useful for genetic manipulation in sports. The course provides knowledge on advanced methods for studying body metabolism and the metabolism of organs/tissues (skeletal muscle, bone, and myocardial tissue), including imaging techniques (morphology) and metabolic mapping, as well as the theoretical basics of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics related to sports performance.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will acquire the ability to evaluate the effect of physical exercise on biochemical and chemical parameters and become acquainted with the major diagnostic tests for their evaluation; students will learn the general principles of imaging methods for studying an organism's metabolism and the metabolism of specific tissues and organs; students will learn the correlations between genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics and sports performance.
