Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: MODULO II
------------------------
Furnish base theoretical and practical concepts for a proteomic study.
------------------------
MM: MODULO I
------------------------
------------------------ MM: Metabolomica teoria ------------------------ The main objective of the course is to introduce the metabolomics analysis as an instrument to investigate the biological complexity of cells/tissues/organs/organisms from the point of view of the small molecules, that are the intermediate and end products of the metabolism. The metabolomics approach will be described as pipeline, a chain of connected steps from the experiment design up to the analysis and the data modeling. ------------------------ MM: Trascrittomica laboratorio ------------------------ The practical part of this Course aims to provide knowledge for proper planning, application and interpretation of a transcriptomic analysis. More in detail students will have the opportunity to design the experimental plan for a trascriptomic analysis, face the wet lab sample preparation procedure, specifically forthe RNASeq approach, and will perform the bioinformatic data analysis and interpretation. ------------------------ MM: Trascrittomica teoria ------------------------ The theory part of this course has as aim to explain what a transcriptomic analsys is and for which purpose it can be applied. Furthermore it aims to provide knowledge about the different approaches and technique which can be applied for a transcriptomic analysis.

Attendance

As stated in point 25 of the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2021/2022, attendance is not mandatory. However, professors may require students to attend lectures for a minimum of hours in order to be able to take the module exam, in which case the methods that will be used to check attendance will be explained at the beginning of the module. 
Please refer to the Crisis Unit's latest updates for the mode of teaching.
