Learning objectives
The first part of the course provides a detailed overview of the molecular mechanisms of cell cycle control. The second part will focus on the structure of the genome and the molecular mechanisms that regulate genome stability and avoid cancer onset and progression. Human diseases resulting from defects in the mechanisms of cell cycle control and in processes responsible for maintaining the integrity of the genome will be taken into consideration.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will acquire knowledge about the following topics:
· Cell cycle progression and its control;
· Mitosis and meiosis;
· Genome stability maintenance.
· Tumor onset and progression;
· Molecular mechanisms altered in many genome instability diseases.
