Obiettivi formativi
The aim of the course is to provide students with theoretical and practical information on molecular, biochemical and immunological dynamics established in the host-parasite coevolution process. The students will be introduced to the comprehension of the basic biological mechanisms determining the within-host (immunological) and between-host (epidemiological) relationships with parasites, and the parasite-disease dynamics.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
The student will acquire knowledge and understanding of the principles and mechanisms underlying the evolutionary associations between hosts and parasites. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding will concern acquisition of specific techniques related to host-parasite researches,gain of terminology linked to host-parasite relationship and improvement of scientific communication skills
