Obiettivi formativi
Cells Molecules and Genes 2 is an integrated course devoted to understand the biochemical processes and inheritance mechanisms supporting life. The course includes a Biochemistry module and a Human and Medical Genetics module, and addresses the bio-molecular diversity, function and turnover in human cells and the genetic basis of inherited diseases. Lectures will be focused on cellular metabolism and energy relationships, regulation and interconnections of metabolic pathways, as well as on mechanisms of inheritance, and principles of genetics as they apply to medicine. The topics of the course will be presented in a conceptual and methodological framework largely shared by modern Human Biochemistry, and Genetics to promote interdisciplinary thinking in the medical field.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
-describe the inheritance mechanisms and the metabolic processes supporting human life
-demonstrate a mastery of core concepts and principles in human and medical genetics and in medical biochemistry
-demonstrate critical thinking skills, such as the ability to resolve problems that occur in the field as they relate to medical issues
-integrate knowledge and explain how genetic and metabolic dysfunctions may lead to disease/lethality
