Obiettivi formativi
The aim of the course is to present to the students the fundamental logic in the use of omic methodologies, to introduce the theoretical and practical bases and the principles on which the different omic techniques are based, to describe the main protocols of use both in the preparation of the sample and of the instrumentation and their control, and finally to provide the basis for the management and analysis of the results including the possibility of integration of the data obtained with different omic methodologies.
In addition, since omics-based recent approaches have unveiled the molecular mechanism behind tumorigenesis of several human tumors and promoted the identification of next-generation molecular markers for early diagnosis, prognosis and even personalized targeted therapy, the course will introduce the student to the most promising omics approaches and their outcomes for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
At the end of the course, the students will be able to address different scientific issues and to choose and apply the best omics approaches to understand the biochemical bases of tissue functions in health and disease. The student will be prepared to discuss the available modern high technologies to identify novel tumor markers and understand personalized therapies; they will learn the "omics" work flow from different clinical matrices (i.e. tumor specimen) to data analysis.
